To celebrate the 15th Anniversary of ENERGY STAR for Buildings, EPA is offering special one-time recognition to organizations that certify 5, 15, 50, or 150 or more buildings in 2014. EPA has also extended the deadline to apply for certification to December 12*, to give everyone more time to earn this special recognition.

This is a one-time opportunity for your organization to send a powerful message to your stakeholders that you’re committed to reducing costs, protecting the environment, and fighting climate change through energy efficiency. It’s only available this year, so there’s never been a better time to certify your buildings and join ENERGY STAR Certification Nation.
