Village Recognized for Sustainability Efforts
Did you know Atlanta is at the forefront of a national effort as one of three municipalities--Seattle and Los Angeles--participating in the Better Buildings Challenge? The BBC is a national energy efficiency leadership initiative and a core element of President Obama's plan to make commercial buildings 20 percent more energy efficient by 2020. The Atlanta BBC is a part of the City’s Power to Change- an effort aimed at making Atlanta more sustainable by improving “green” programs and policies such as water and energy conservation, reducing our solid waste, reducing carbon emissions, and improving the rates of recycling.Atlanta Tech Village is excited to have been identified as an Atlanta Better Buildings Challenge (ABBC) 2014 top performer. “As we enter the fourth year of the Atlanta Better Buildings Challenge, I am proud of the collective contributions that our participants have made to Atlanta’s economy and environmental footprint,” said Mayor Kasim Reed. The Atlanta BBC top performers have surpassed program expectations and continue to do so in a winning fashion. With this continued progress, I have no doubt that Atlanta’s portfolio of buildings will exceed the 2020 goals for both energy and water.”Those recognized represent participants whose remarkable efforts produced the highest levels of energy and water savings in 2014. Three properties in Buckhead were recognized as top energy performers, which included the Atlanta History Center, Atlanta Tech Village, and Two Live Oak.Our 103,000 square foot building has come a long way in the past two years of renovation! We are proud to be recognized for achieving some of the highest levels of energy and water savings. Here's to making the world a better place, one building at a time!
