SEPTEMBER 2009 - Coordinating Sustainability

I'm very happy to say that on August 14th, I received the LEED Green Associate credential.  As I mentioned last month, it's the first step of the LEED Professional Accreditation Program.  Once I have worked on a LEED certified project, I can take a LEED specialty exam and receive the LEED Accredited Professional credential.  In the meantime, as Sustainability Coordinator, my goal is to motivate as many of my coworkers as possible to become credentialed[1].

I've also been working closely with Craig Bongiovanni, one of our project managers, at properly positioning CIR to successfully market and assist our customers at attaining the various financial incentives available for making electrical energy efficiency upgrades.  One goal towards these efforts is to become an active Business Partner of the Commercial Lighting Program, which will provide us with the marketing and educational tools necessary to help our customers significantly reduce their lighting energy costs while saving on their initial investment.  Kenn Latal from ICF International, the Commercial Lighting Program administrator, was just in our office giving a "Lunch & Learn" seminar on the program and how we can help our customers to attain various program incentives for their effective, energy-efficient lighting upgrades.

Stay tuned and I'll keep you posted on these and other efforts CIR is taking to be a more sustainable company.
