New York, NY (March 28, 2023) - Today, Clarion Partners LLC has been recognized as a first-time ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy.*
Each year, the ENERGY STAR program honors a select group of businesses and organizations that have made outstanding contributions in the transition to a clean energy economy. ENERGY STAR award winners lead their industries in the production, sale, and adoption of energy-efficient products, homes, buildings, services, and strategies. These efforts are essential to fighting the climate crisis, protecting public health, and creating a clean energy future for everyone.
“As we accelerate historic efforts to address climate change, public-private partnerships will be essential to realizing the scale of our ambition,” said EPA Administrator Michael S. Regan. “I applaud this year’s ENERGY STAR award winners for working with EPA to deliver a clean energy future that saves American consumers and businesses money and creates jobs.”
Clarion’s ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year Award recognizes the many initiatives the Firm is pursuing across the organization to improve energy efficiency, reduce carbon emissions, and celebrate high-performing assets. In 2023, Clarion Partners was acknowledged as an Executive member of ENERGY STAR’s Certification Nation for achieving 78 ENERGY STAR certifications during the previous year, spanning over 22.6 million square feet.** Clarion is also an active participant in initiatives such as ENERGY STAR Day and Energy Awareness Month and utilizes these campaigns as an opportunity to educate and engage with employees and tenants.
Clarion Partners implemented 154 energy efficiency projects in 2022, including the installation of shadow meters and LED lighting at industrial properties to improve data coverage and energy efficiency. As of year-end 2022, Clarion was tracking more than 82.4 million square feet of real estate on the ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager platform.
“As real estate owners, we recognize our opportunity and responsibility to drive energy efficiency within commercial buildings at scale,” said Karen Mahrous, Head of ESG for Clarion Partners. “Clarion Partners is honored to be recognized by ENERGY STAR as a leader and a partner in taking action to build a sustainable future.”
