Product Spotlight: Ordinance Filing

Measurabl shows users which buildings have disclosure ordinances and offers help with compliance

In many cities across the US and Canada, building owners need to file annual data submissions to their local governments to comply with benchmarking ordinances. The vast majority of ordinances (36 out of 37 ordinances tracked in Measurabl) have due dates of July 1 or earlier, making these months especially busy for commercial real estate owners. 

For companies that own and manage properties in these affected markets, meeting and keeping track of ordinance deadlines can be burdensome, particularly as companies are pulling together data for annual ESG reports such as GRESB and CDP.

This map summarizes which cities, counties, and states in the U.S. have adopted mandatory building energy benchmarking and transparency ordinances for existing buildings.
