Why is EPA adding waste tracking to Portfolio Manager?
EPA has the opportunity to work across media programs to further environmental results, respond to market demand and introduce standardized waste reporting in commercial buildings.
Portfolio Manager users asked to have waste included in Portfolio Manager, as they think there is value in one platform to track and manage energy, water and waste. This will enable them to easily meet the increasing demands of sustainability reporting.
If I enter my waste data into Portfolio Manager, does EPA view it?
No. EPA does not look at individual accounts or properties (unless specifically requested for user support). EPA only pulls aggregated information and overall activity level data (number of accounts, number of properties benchmarked, etc). Portfolio Manager is designed for the use of building owners and managers, not for reporting to EPA.
