On Monday, the Credit Human Headquarters will become the first building in the world to be awarded the BSAG Climate Ready Certified Building designation, and Mayor Ron Nirenberg will be on hand to make a special announcement and present a plaque commemorating the occasion.

“Aligned with the City of San Antonio’s Climate Action and Adaptation Plan, the Climate Ready Certification Program is a first-of-its-kind initiative designed to address the effects of climate change in the city. Energy resilience and water security are the new goals, superseding those of energy efficiency and water conservation “According to a statement made by Build San Antonio Green. “The Credit Human Headquarters was built to be one of the most resilient structures in the area, and as such, it has been awarded this certification. The Headquarters represents a new standard for environmentally friendly structures that will aid locals in adjusting to our changing climate and increasing frequency of extreme weather.”

Since 2001, Build San Antonio Green has collaborated with the City of San Antonio, Bexar County, and CPS Energy, as well as Builders and Developers, to certify green buildings in the city, thereby reducing emissions and saving energy. We’re proud to say that more than 13,000 initiatives in our region have been approved. These green-certified structures have prevented the use of 377 million pounds of carbon dioxide equivalent and saved our city 22.5 megawatts of peak demand energy. The Bring Solar Home initiative is also managed by Build San Antonio Green. In order to help people make informed decisions about going solar, Bring Solar Home provides them with unbiased information about their options and what they should know and consider before making a purchase. In addition, it links potential buyers to three cost-free price estimates from local installers.
