What Does Arizona BOMA Do For the Industry?

Through individual action and strategic alliances, Arizona BOMA has accomplished the following:

Legislation: Arizona BOMA tracks and directly engages legislators on legislation which would have significant impact our members. See below for a list of recent legislative issues.


Energy: BOMA International recognized early on the need to make commercial buildings more energy efficient and has rolled out several programs to help our members achieve this goal. One of our biggest efforts, the 7-Point Challenge (press release), urges the industry to reduce energy consumption by 30 percent by 2012. Since its inception, more than 120 BOMA local associations and member companies, including have endorsed the Challenge and made improved energy performance a priority.

A critical step in our efforts is benchmarking commercial office buildings using the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR® Portfolio Manager and sharing that energy management data with BOMA International’s Master Account. By agreeing to share this energy management progress, BOMA members help us highlight our industry’s commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. BOMA uses this data to track the process of the commercial real estate industry in order to demonstrate the effectives of the voluntary marketplace. This allows us to show policy makers that we can reduce energy consumption without new mandates.

For over 90 years, BOMA has gone to great lengths to ensure that the data that companies submit for BOMA’s Experience Exchange Report® (EER) is kept confidential in the data collection and reporting processes. EER data is reported only in the aggregate, and no one outside key BOMA staff has access to individual building information. Over the years, we have earned the confidence of the industry. Data shared with the BOMA Master Account through Portfolio Manager is treated similarly. All published data will be aggregated to keep this information confidential. Contact James Cox at (202) 326-6364 if you have any questions related to our privacy policy.
