SF_Report Cover

The San Francisco Existing Commercial Buildings Performance Report 2010-2014 is the result of a collaboration between Greenprint and the San Francisco Department of the Environment. The report found that energy consumption by commercial properties in San Francisco has declined significantly since 2011 after the implementation of San Francisco’s Existing Commercial Buildings Energy Performance Ordinance.

“The ULI Greenprint/City of San Francisco benchmarking report offers a proven approach to real estate benchmarking, which can help inform jurisdictions all over the country in reducing greenhouse gases,” said ULI Global Chief Executive Officer Patrick L. Phillips. “It’s critical for government agencies and the real estate industry to work together to accommodate sensible, sustainable urban growth. Given the local nature of construction practices and codes, developing localized benchmarks can help inform how the private sector manages their properties and how the public sector supports meaningful change.”

The Greenprint Library includes case studies, white papers, primary and secondary research, reports, and presentations both published by Greenprint and other knowledgeable and respected sources.

Future white papers will include topics such as lighting, HVAC, fenestration, energy systems, roofs, operations, and utility programs.
