The Sustainable Contractor Designation Program is a new Department initiative that 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.
Currently, only general Contractors for 1-, 2- and 3-family homes; Master and Special Electricians; and Master Plumbers can participate in the program. Later this year, the program will be expanded to allow master plumbers and electricians to participate.
