The Atlanta Better Buildings Challenge (ABBC) is a nation-leading sustainability initiative that challenges building stakeholders to make their buildings better by improving building energy and water performance. Its success can be attributed to the committed facility managers, prudent property owners, conscientious building occupants and service providers. These community-wide efforts are led by City of Atlanta Mayor’s Office of Sustainability, Central Atlanta Progress, Midtown Alliance, Livable Buckhead, and Southface.
