There is no energy reduction performance path and ENERGY STAR benchmarking is encouraged but not required.

To meet the guiding principles, agencies would need to be 30% better than the current ASHRAE 90.1 standard or have an Energy Star rating of 75 or higher.

While there are credits agencies can choose from below, these will not achieve total compliance with the Guiding Principles. The rating system has requirements to follow RCRA subtitle C and subtitle I and the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) but it does not require proof of compliance.

To comply with the Guiding Principles, agencies must demonstrate that they follow these requirements.

Solid Waste Diversion
GP 5.6. Reduce the Environmental Impact of Materials: Solid Waste Management
BOMA 360 warn

While there are credits agencies can choose from below, these will not achieve total compliance with the Guiding Principles. The rating system addresses diverting construction and demolition waste, it does not specify that at least 50% of construction and demolition material be diverted from landfills. To meet the Guiding Principles, agencies must ensure at least 50% of construction and demolition materials are diverted from landfills.

Waste Management and Recycling Programs
(4) Bulk Waste: including guidelines for diversion of as much material as possible from landfill by salvage for donation or reuse, or for recycling. Includes large or bulky items not typically generated on a day-to-day basis and that are generally removed separately from the regular waste stream, such as furniture and appliances. (1 point)

BOMA Best warn

The rating system encourages diversion of waste materials and provides credit for higher rates of diversion, but there is not a requirement to achieve greater than 50% diversion [it is an optional credit]

To meet the Guiding Principles, agencies must divert at least 50% of materials from landfills.
