What qualifies as a Green Building in New York?
Generally speaking Green Buildings in New York must be LEED Silver certified in order to qualify officially as a sustainable green building. To be certified as LEED Silver, green buildings in New York must have 50-59 points across five major credit categories: Sustainable Sites, Water Efficiency, Energy and Atmosphere, Materials and Resources, Indoor Environmental Quality. Buildings account for as much as 40% of total energy usage in the United States. By employing green design in building construction, energy consumption will drop because of increased efficiency.
Why should new and existing buildings be Green?
Green building design is a fundamental aspect in the reduction of operations and maintenance costs. Green Buildings use less energy more efficiently, with better resource management and have more efficient building equipment like high efficiency boilers and HVAC systems. Not only does this reduce utility bills but increases occupant comfort. This results in higher rents, sale prices, occupancy rate and productivity all along with a reduced environmental footprint. Green buildings New York also offers grants and incentives to go Green, which can mitigate capital costs.
