More than 200 companies in the industry, including major corporations like ConocoPhillips, Transocean, Schlumberger, BP, Kinder Morgan, Marathon, Shell Oil and Halliburton, call Houston home. Houston is also making great strides in energy conservation and stewardship. Houston has consistently been ranked among the top ten U.S. cities for Energy Star-certified buildings, according to the EPA. Houston also ranks among the top ten cities for buildings with LEED certification which recognizes sustainable architecture and building practices promoting environmental stewardship and energy conservation.
