(May 7, 2014, Newport Beach, CA) California Commercial Real Estate Services (California Commercial) is pleased to announced its acceptance into EPA’s ENERGY STAR program as an ENERGY STAR partner. Through its voluntary partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR Program, California Commercial, will work to improve energy efficiency and fight climate change through a strategic, corporate energy management program that will enhance the financial health of its clients and help preserve the environment for future generations.
"California Commercial is committed to building and managing properties with long-term operational efficiency," said founder George Okita. "Part of that plan includes cost savings initiatives and thoughtful energy consumption with participation in programs such as EPA's ENERGY STAR."
In partnership with ENERGY STAR, California Commercial is committed to:
“Improving the energy efficiency of our nation’s buildings is critical to protecting our environment,” said Jean Lupinacci, Chief of the ENERGY STAR Commercial & Industrial Branch. “From the boiler room to the board room, ENERGY STAR partners are leading the way by making the buildings where we work, play and learn more efficient.”
ENERGY STAR was introduced by EPA in 1992 as a voluntary, market-based partnership to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through energy efficiency. Today, the ENERGY STAR label can be found on more than 60 different kinds of products as well as new homes and commercial and industrial buildings that meet strict energy-efficiency specifications set by the EPA. Over the past twenty years, American families and businesses have saved a total of nearly $230 billion on utility bills and prevented more than 1.7 billion metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions with help from ENERGY STAR.
