The online platform is intended to equip policymakers, building owners and managers, practitioners and other professionals with the tools and resources they need to create better buildings for better cities. It serves as a hub for both existing resources from Johnson Controls’ Institute for Building Efficiency and new knowledge products from the World Resources Institute and its partners. The Building Efficiency Initiative will build market awareness and action on (1) local government leadership by example, particularly in the developing world, (2) local benchmarking and sustainable building certification and labeling approaches, (3) innovative financing to support efficiency investments and (4) distributed energy systems at the building and community scale.
