A brief description of when and why the energy consumption baseline was adopted:

The baseline for each building depends upon when the sub-metering system was operational. To the largest extent possible, we try to utilize 2007 as that is the benchmark year for our climate commitments.

3.14

Total energy consumption per unit of floor area:
Site energy Source energy
Performance year 0.09 MMBtu / GSF 0.15 MMBtu / GSF
Baseline year 0.13 MMBtu / GSF 0.13 MMBtu / GSF

Percentage reduction in total source energy consumption per unit of floor area from baseline:
0
