After a busy March at Expo, take the time in April to learn about how a new partnership between the SFTA and the EPA can help your business save money and reduce environmental impacts!

The EPA’s Portfolio Manager is a program within the EPA’s Energy Star program—a voluntary program that has helped companies improve their energy efficiency for over two decades. Portfolio Manager is an online tool you can use to measure and track energy and water consumption, as well as greenhouse gas emissions. Additionally, you can benchmark your performance against the performance of other buildings, or a portfolio of buildings – already 40% of U.S. commercial building space in benchmarked in Portfolio Manager! SFTA members who have participated in the program will join the webinar to talk about their experience and results using Portfolio Manager.

The webinar takes place at 11am Pacific, 2pm Eastern, on Tuesday, April 19th, costs $25 for non-members and is free to SFTA members. Please Click here to register.sign up here to attend and learn more!
