/R E P E A T -- Media Advisory - REALpac to Adopt Energy Consumption Target
for Office Buildings/

TORONTO, Sept. 14 /CNW/ -

    WHAT:     Following extensive research and consultation, the Real
              Property Association of Canada (REALpac) is adopting an energy
              consumption target for office buildings to be achieved by 2015.
              The REALpac target includes all energy used in the operation of
              office buildings (electricity, natural gas and other thermal
              energy sources) converted to the common energy unit of
              equivalent kilowatt hours. The REALpac target for office
              buildings is intended as an essential first step in
              demonstrating substantial, sector-wide emissions reductions and
              operating cost savings, while taking full advantage of
              incentives and getting in front of potential regulations.

    WHO:      Real Property Association of Canada (REALpac), co-sponsored by
              the Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC) and the Building
              Owners and Managers Association of Canada (BOMA Canada) The
              following guest speakers will share their views on the
              significance of the new target; how it will dovetail with some
              of the industry's key initiatives, and how it may impact your
