Recognition through ENERGY STAR building certification
Commercial and institutional buildings that earn a score of 75 or higher with ENERGY STAR® Portfolio Manager® are eligible for ENERGY STAR certification in Canada. A building with this recognized symbol means it’s certified as energy efficient and will receive:
