EnergyLogic is a National Green Building Standard (NGBS) Green advocate. We believe it is affordable and among the most rigorous green building rating systems available, and we believe that developers should have a choice of green certification programs.
The City of Denver is currently collecting comments on their Green Roofs Building Policy Proposal. In short, they have proposed that as an alternative to the mandate for a green roof, new and existing buildings are allowed to install a cool roof and elect for LEED Gold or Enterprise Green Communities certification.
The Denver Department of Public Health and Environment (DDPHE) is leading a formal stakeholder engagement and public input process to review and possibly modify Denver’s Green Roof Ordinance. Based on the ICC/ASHRAE – 700 National Green Building Standard (NGBS), EnergyLogic has respectfully requested that NGBS Green Certification be recognized as a named alternative to LEED Gold or Enterprise Green Communities as one of the allowable green certification compliance options for new or existing building to comply with the Denver Green Roof requirements.
Will you join us in supporting NGBS?
Please consider sending comments requesting that NGBS Green is included as a certification option for their policy.
