440 Ninth Avenue Achieves Certification

Great Forest managed the registration and certification process for 440 Ninth Avenue, an 18-story office building in midtown NYC managed by the Paramount Group.  The LEED certification process was a major step in the property’s ongoing sustainability program, which gained traction in 2008 when it began to track its energy usage in the EPA’s Portfolio Manager.  In particular, Great Forest’s expertise in tenant education and outreach played an important and vital role in the building operations.  Our project work included:

  • organization of an Earth Day event, with supporting educational elements including newsletters and e-blasts, that helped them achieve an Innovation credit
  • documentation of the building occupant’s commuting behavior, winning the building an Exemplary Performance credit
  • creation of a water efficiency fixture inventory
  • -implementation of  building policies for waste, cleaning and general sustainable building maintenance ​
  • waste audits
