Union Bank, N.A. recently announced that four of its buildings have been recognized in the 2013 ENERGY STAR¨ National Building Competition: Battle of the Buildings, a contest that represents excellence in energy performance.
With the goals of saving energy and combating climate change, the competition was staged among commercial and public-sector buildings. In partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)Õs ENERGY STAR program, participants measured, tracked, and reported their monthly energy consumption using Portfolio Manager¨, EPAÕs online energy management tool. Following the competition, the Fremont Branch of Union Bank was among the four branches recognized by the EPA for exceeding the AgencyÕs 20 percent energy savings goal Ñ as measured by their energy use in 2013 compared to 2012.
