The USEPA has released its list of US cities with the most EnergyStar certified buildings. Topping the list:
- Los Angeles
- Washington, DC
- San Francisco
- New York
Although impressive and significant, a caution to those putting their eggs in the EnergyStar basket: water use and waste production as well as purchasing should be considered in addition to adoption of energy efficiency programs. So don't forget to look beyond the EnergyStar plaque to know if your event venue and destination has a holistic approach to sustainability.
