Building Benchmarking

Reducing building energy use is the most important step that Oak Park can take to take action on climate change and reach the community’s Climate Ready Oak Park goals.

In Oak Park, energy used by commercial buildings creates one-third of greenhouse gas emissions, which trap heat in the Earth’s atmosphere and cause climate change.

The Village is considering a benchmarking policy and program to help owners and managers of large commercial buildings to better understand and improve their building’s performance.

Benchmarking engagement session
