We are GREEN!

We are so excited to share with you our Green news!

At an awards ceremony in Washington, DC on Tuesday, December 11th, TRIP’s Executive Director, Patrick Madden, had the privilege of accepting TRIP’s Green Organization Designation Award from NeighborWorks America.  We are one of just 16 groups nationwide chosen to receive this designation.

This award was result of the work of a core group of staff members who formed the Green Team, embraced the initiative, set and met deadlines, and successfully made application for this designation – and in the process increased our green awareness and changed the way we do business.

The NeighborWorks Green Organization program is building a network of sustainable organizations that will lead the affordable housing and community development industry to a more sustainable future. Through the NeighborWorks Green Organization program, NeighborWorks America supports the comprehensive commitment to sustainable operations conducted by its member organizations that can extend social, financial, health, and environmental benefits of green homes and housing practices to thousands of communities and tens of thousands of individuals and families.

NeighborWorks believes that sustainability goes far beyond green construction. Providing the most effective green resources, knowledge, and venues for action can impact a community at its core, transforming not only the physical environment that residents work and live in, but their quality of life, personal health and sense of empowerment.
