Gain National and International Recognition by Donating Windows

The National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) is pleased to direct its members’ attention to a unique opportunity for gaining national and international recognition while promoting sustainable building and improving the lives of others.

As a member of the Sustainable Buildings Industry Council (SBIC), NFRC supports this organization’s mission to serve the public as an advocate of designing sustainable facilities, which improve energy efficiency and provide a healthier, safer environment for occupants.
SBIC is currently involved with two sustainable building initiatives that are requesting product donations from fenestration manufacturers in return for recognition.

One project is being undertaken by the
Fuller Center, which seeks to build 50 new homes in North Korea during 2011. The second project involves the New York City Department of Design and Construction seeking both energy-efficient and fire-rated fenestration products.

Taking part in one or both of these projects is a great way to broaden your outreach while displaying your commitment to sustainable building and using energy more efficiently while serving others. The recognition you can gain by participating may be outweighed only by your satisfaction.

Please contact SBIC’s Executive Director,
Bud DeFlaviis, to get involved.
Please contact NFRC's Communications & Marketing Manager, Tom Herron, with any questions.
