Boston Building Energy Performance Standards
Reduce your building’s carbon footprint
In September of 2021, the Boston City Council passed the Building Emissions Reduction and Disclosure Ordinance (BERBO 2.0), an ordinance that replaces the first BERDO of 2013 and sets the updated Building Energy Performance standards for the city. These standards set buildings on the path to complete carbon neutrality by 2050.
What is Covered by the Boston Building Energy Performance Standards?
With buildings accounting for over 70% of greenhouse gas emissions in the this municipality, the Boston Building Energy Performance Standards will put 3,200 of the City’s largest buildings on track to be carbon neutral by 2025. These standards could, in fact, reduce Boston’s carbon footprint by 60% overall in that timeframe.
Buildings covered in this phase of the City’s BEPS all total 20,000 or more gross square feet, and each of these buildings are expected to comply. To learn more about Boston Building Energy Performance Standards, click here.
