Green Labels Migrate From Marketing Materials To Property Records
San Francisco's Assessor-Recorder’s office has started recording and tracking "Green Labels" for individual properties as part of the official land records maintained by the City and County of San Francisco.
The labels which are currently being recorded include the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), Build It Green’s Green Point Rated, Home Energy Rating System II (HERS II), Home Energy Score (US Dept of Energy) and ENERGYSTAR.
So far, the Assessor-Recorder’s Office has entered Green Label information on 1,057 properties, including 647 condominiums and 105 multi-family buildings. The Department of Environment estimates that over 3,000 residential units have either earned a Green Label, or are in a building that has achieved one of the distinctions, in San Francisco.
On the commercial side, almost 200 buildings with nearly 55 million square feet of space have officially been recorded as Green.
