EPA Recognizes USAA Real Estate Company With 2013 Energy Star® Partner Of The Year - Sustained Excellence Award
USAA Real Estate Company earns award for protecting the environment through superior energy efficiency
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recognized USAA Real Estate Company with a 2013 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year - Sustained Excellence Award for their continued leadership in protecting our environment through superior energy efficiency. USAA Real Estate Company's accomplishments will be recognized at an awards ceremony in Washington, D.C. on March 26, 2013.
USAA Real Estate Company, an ENERGY STAR partner since 2000, will be honored for its long-term commitment to energy efficiency. In 2012, USAA saved 3.42% in energy consumption, saved $2.7MM and improved overall efficiency (measured via reduction in Average Source Energy Intensity – kBtu/SF/YR) by 38%. This recognition marks USAA Real Estate Company's 11th straight Energy Star Partner of the Year recognition, the most by any real estate company.
Even as the expansive Texas A&M University campus continues to be built up, the university's energy cost continues to drop – and multi-million-dollar annual savings are being achieved through energy-related cost avoidance. At the same time, water consumption and greenhouse gas emissions are markedly lower and environmentally friendly methods of waste management have significantly increased the percentage of solid waste material that is recycled and kept out of the landfill.
These accomplishments, together with a 40-percent reduction in energy consumption per square foot and more than $140 million in cost avoidance achieved over the last 10 years (from fiscal year 2002 through 2012), are welcome good news for cost-conscious Texas A&M officials. Over that 10-year period, the size of the campus increased by 25 percent, to nearly 24 million gross square feet (GSF), while real energy consumption decreased by 25 percent – resulting in the 40 percent improvement per GSF.
