Smarter Business: Green Building

On Track to LEED Platinum Certification

NRDC's staff in Washington, DC, moved into a new home in 2011. The office space offers flexibility to accommodate various virtual and physical work environments, maximizes daylight for all employees, and enhances air and water quality while minimizing waste, noise and pollution normally associated with a workplace. The new office is on track to be awarded LEED platinum certification, the highest possible rating for sustainability from the U.S. Green Building Council.
