Waypoint is pleased to announce that we have joined the San Francisco 2030 District as a Professional Stakeholder Member. Waypoint is proud to unite with the District and looks forward to supporting the goals of the District and its members.
2030 Districts are a private-sector led initiative to reduce building energy use, water consumption and transportation related greenhouse gases (GHGs) 50% by 2030. By developing a partnership of property owners and managers, service stakeholders and community stakeholders, 2030 Districts bring key stakeholders and decision makers together to achieve this common goal. Each District is an independent, grassroots-based, voluntary membership group. The San Francisco 2030 District in particular is a public-private collaborative, representing 10 million square feet of building space, that seeks to prove that high performing buildings are the most profitable buildings in the market.
With these goals in mind, the San Francisco 2030 District was a natural fit for Waypoint to partner with. Through our own work within the commercial real estate (CRE) industry via utilities and government energy efficiency program implementation as well as our industry-leading financial benchmarking platform, Waypoint is helping the move the CRE industry towards the 2030 District’s goals.
On the energy efficiency front, Waypoint has been working in San Francisco with Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) since 2014 to help commercial real estate buildings reduce their energy usage via increased efficiency measure adoption. Through our Connect Program, Waypoint has worked with many of the top property management firms to benchmark, audit and support the implementation of energy conservation measures.
To help owners manage energy, water and all other costs incurred by a commercial building, Waypoint’s financial benchmarking platform allows building owners and managers to track their expense performance, compare their costs to peer buildings and drill down into energy and water expenses for better visibility into utility reductions over time. These costs reductions lead to a number of benefits such as net operating income (NOI) improvements and increased asset value.
Waypoint looks forward to working with the San Francisco 2030 District to meet the District’s goals and support energy, water and GHG emissions reduction within the commercial building sector. If you’re a member of the 2030 District looking for support in reaching the 50% by 2030 goals, we’d love to work with you; reach out to Waypoint at firstname.lastname@example.org.
