From our homes and offices to our hospitals, schools, restaurants, and stores, every day we make decisions that influence whether or not our buildings are efficient. By improving a building’s energy efficiency, we improve its affordability, health, comfort, and resiliency. The Institute for Market Transformation (IMT) is a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that catalyzes demand for energy-efficient buildings. Founded in 1996 and based in Washington, D.C., IMT leverages its expertise in the intersection of real estate and public policy to drive and support policy outcomes, widespread changes in real estate practices, and lasting market demand for energy efficiency—resulting in greater benefits for all people, the economy, and the environment.
