On July 16, the Atlanta BBC--a nation-leading public/private initiative led locally by the City of Atlanta Mayor's Office of Sustainability--recognized more than 20 participants, including Downtown’s Hyatt Regency Atlanta hotel, the Epsten Group headquarters, The Turner Building, The Atlanta Civic Center, CNN Center, American Cancer Society Center, Philips Arena, the Sam Nunn Federal Center, 55 Allen Plaza and Saint Luke’s Episcopal Church. These buildings have reached the 20% reduction goal since 2009 in either energy or water consumption.
Downtown has more than 35 million square feet of buildings participating in the Atlanta BBC, more than any other business district within the City of Atlanta.

About the Better Buildings Challenge (Atlanta BBC)
The Atlanta Better Buildings Challenge is a nation-leading public/private initiative. Led by the City of Atlanta Mayor’s Office of Sustainability and managed locally by Central Atlanta Progress, the goal of the Atlanta BBC is to reduce energy and water consumption by at least 20 percent in participating buildings across Atlanta by 2020.
“Atlanta BBC is a great demonstration of what can be accomplished when businesses and government unite around a single goal,” said Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed.
