PORTFOLIO ENERGY PERFORMANCE

Better Buildings Challenge Partners strive to decrease portfolio-wide source energy use intensity (EUI) and to increase the percent improvement compared to a set baseline. Staples' portfolio consists of more than 25 million square feet. Staples has improved energy performance by 14% from a 2008 baseline. 

ENERGY PERFORMANCE BY FACILITY

Looking at the percent improvement in energy performance across all facilities can provide insight into how an organization is saving energy. Staples has achieved energy performance improvement of greater than 15% at nearly 450 of its properties. There are a number of properties that have experienced an increase in Source EUI. These properties have been targeted for future energy efficiency improvements.

IDENTIFYING OPPORTUNITIES FOR IMPROVEMENT

Property-level energy performance metrics, including EUI and percent improvement to date, are critical to track progress over time and identify opportunities for additional energy savings. Staples' portfolio consists of properties with a wide range of baseline EUI values, most of which are from 100 to 250 kBtu/sq. ft. The majority of properties are showing energy improvement since 2008. The properties located near or below the 0% axis may present good opportunities for further savings.

PORTFOLIO WATER PERFORMANCE

Better Buildings Challenge Partners strive to decrease portfolio-wide source water use intensity (WUI) and to increase the percent improvement compared to a set baseline. Staples' water portfolio consists of nearly 17 million square feet. Since 2011, Staples has improved water performance by 30%.
