The City of New York Launches Sustainable Contractor Designation Program – Recognizes RESNET Energy Smart Contractors

July 27th, 2011 - Posted by RESNET under Hot News

On July 19, 2011, the New York City Buildings Department launched the Sustainable Contractor Designation Program, a new initiative that identifies trade licensees who demonstrate knowledge in sustainable practices through third-party certifications and agree to promote the use of green technologies to their customers. Those licensees who that Department indentifies as sustainable will have an icon in the shape of a green leaf displayed next to their names in the Department’s Buildings Information System (BISWeb).

The New York City Buildings Department recognized the RESNET Energy Smart Contractor credential for the program’s general contractor license for 1-, 2- and 3-family homes

The Sustainable Contractor Designation Program recognizes those individuals who are working to meet today’s increased demand for new, green technologies and reduce the City’s carbon footprint. The program identifies contractors who demonstrate knowledge in sustainable practices through third-party certifications/credentials. Contractors who choose to participate in the program agree to promote the use of green technologies to their customers and report these activities to the Department. Additionally, the program allows consumers to search for and identify contractors with expertise in green practices.
