ENVIRONOTES/ REGREEN 2.0 RESIDENTIAL REMODELING PROGRAM CONTINUES TO GROW/ MORE THAN A year after its introduction, the REGREEN residential remodeling program—a joint effort of ASID and USGBC—continues to flourish! Through a variety of channels, REGREEN addresses the major elements of any green home renovation project, including home-siting, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, material and resources, and indoor environmental quality. An expanded REGREEN website was launched at the USGBC’s Greenbuild conference last November and over the past year, this free resource has grown to include 30 case studies in addition to the nine projects associated with the original REGREEN guidelines that formed the program’s backbone at its introduction in 2008. A significant new component of the RGEREEN program was launched early this year, with the introduction of the REGREEN Trained Certificate of Completion program. This new certification recognizes professionals who differentiate themselves in the marketplace by successfully completing a rigorous training program consisting of more than 25 hours of REGREEN-specific educational courses. REGREEN Trained professionals have been trained in product selection, building systems integration and green strategies and as a result, they are exceedingly well-equipped to make retrofit decisions that will improve home performance and indoor air quality, are better for the environment and will save home owners money. More than 50 professionals are already in the process of becoming REGREEN Trained. Professionals who successfully complete this rigorous training program receive a printed Certificate of Completion and are able to utilize the REGREEN Trained logo for use on business cards, website, stationery and other business collateral. Certificate of Completion holders also receive online recognition on the websites of REGREEN-affiliated organizations: www.regreenprogram.org, www.asid.org and www.greenhomeguide.org. i Fo r m o re i n fo r m a t i o n , v i s i t www. re g re e n p ro g ra m .o rg o r e m a i l regreen@asid.org. www.asid.org november/december/10 icon 19 http://www.regreenprogram.org http://www.asid.org http://www.greenhomeguide.org http://www.regreenprogram.org http://www.asid.org
