The Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) International and the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) have signed a memorandum of intent to promote energy efficiency and environmentally responsible building operations and maintenance practices.

Among the initiatives outlined in the MOI are joint promotional activities including collaboration at BOMA's North American Commercial Real Estate Congress and the Office Building Show in New York City in July 2007 and USGBC's Greenbuild Conference and Expo in Los Angeles in October 2007.

Other initiatives include joint educational offerings including Web-based seminars on energy efficiency and green building practices. BOMA says it will be working with USGBC as a top-tier partner, joining a group of organizations that include the Urban Land Institute and the American Institute of Architects. As a top-tier Partner, BOMA will be working directly with USGBC on program development for Greenbuild 2007 and beyond.   

"This collaboration with USGBC reflects the commercial real estate industry's continued and growing commitment to promoting energy efficient and environmentally responsible buildings," says BOMA International Chairman and Chief Elected Officer Kurt R. Padavano, and Chief Operating Officer of Advance Realty Group of Bedminster, NJ. "Working together to promote sustainable practices not only provides a healthier and more productive workplace environment, but also creates a tremendous potential for energy savings and reduced emissions."

"Collaboration and sharing best practices are the keys to success," said Rick Fedrizzi, president, CEO & founding chair, U.S. Green Building Council.  "BOMA is one of the most respected and influential organizations in the building industry, and we are proud to be partnering with them to help further green building practices in the commercial real estate sector."
