Building Emissions Reduction and Disclosure
How to Report to BERDO in 2023
BERDO applies to the following buildings:
- Non-residential buildings that are 20,000 square feet or larger.
- Residential buildings that have 15 or more units.
- Any parcel with multiple buildings that sum to at least 20,000 square feet or 15 units.
Buildings between 20,000 and 35,000 square feet or residential buildings with 15 to 35 units will need to begin reporting their energy in 2022 and going forward . They will not be subject to the emissions standards until 2031, reporting for 2030 emissions.

Future data disclosures will report on metrics related to environmental justice and the equitable implementation of BERDO. Staff, in conjunction with input from community members, are identifying appropriate metrics to track and report on over time. Initial research has been conducted to evaluate options for the development of environmental justice metrics for BERDO and has been summarized in a memo.
