  • Thank you Mayor… he is the best Mayor in the country and I am proud to work for him. Thank you Aparna/David and the entire Green Team. As said, my name is Erin Miller, I am the Environmental Steward for the City of Columbus. The Environmental Steward’s Office is a partnership between the City and SWACO.
  • The Mayor launched the Get Green Columbus initiative in 2005 with the release of Green Memo, a policy directive document outlining strategies to meet both economic development goals and ensure a healthier environment. The vision is to make Columbus not only the best, but also the greenest place in the nation to live, work and raise a family. We have had many accomplishments over the last five years, annual reports can be found online at as well as a five year accomplishment summary.
  • In February this year, we released Green Memo II, which is the Get Green Columbus strategic plan for 2010-2015. This document is available outside and is also online. The first goal is to improve economic social and environmental prosperity by supporting the growth and development of sustainable ‘green’ businesses. Which is the goal we will focus on today. Forgive me, I have 10 minutes, so I will go through this quickly.
  • Our first objective is to Create, Attract and Retain Green Job Industries. Green Job industries and occupations are defined by the Department of Labor as including the energy efficient building, construction and retrofit industries; the renewable electric power industry; the energy efficient and advanced drive train industry; the biofuels industry; the deconstruction and materials reuse industries; the energy efficiency assessment industry serving residential, commercial and industrial sectors; sustainable agriculture including healthy food production; forestry; recycling and waste reduction; manufacturers that produce sustainable products using environmentally sustainable processes and materials. Supply a Trained workforce – we are working with COWIC and Columbus State Community College on a Green Pathways Project- Job Training & Placement Program to help prepare out of work individuals for careers in the Green Job industry. We have applied for grant funds to get this program to the next level and are awaiting response. Encourage Entrepreneurship- Rick Coplin, Tech Columbus is going to talk about Green Business Incubators. We have been working with Sci Tech, Tech Columbus and OSU on developing a Green Business Incubator in the Tech Corridor. We are in the process of developing an Economic Development Strategic Marketing Plan with an emphasis on Green Jobs, to help us identify, attract and market to the green job industry and be more proactive to create jobs.
  • The second objective is to support businesses in their efforts to Get Green. The first item is to Paul Racher, Columbia Gas of Ohio 30 Chuck Jennings, AEP 15 minutes Jeff Stephens, Consider Biking 15 Greg Cunningham, Limited Brands Time - 90 minutes. 80 minutes.
  • The Green Columbus Fund is a grant program meant to encourage sustainable development and redevelopment through financial incentive to private businesses and non-profit organizations. Its focus is on redevelopment of the inner city, and is expected to produce environmental, social and economic benefits. Private businesses and non-profit organizations will be eligible to receive grant funds on a first-come first-serve basis in the two broad areas of site clean-up and green buildings.   Grant funding for land acquisition, environmental assessments and physical clean-ups will be limited to brownfields in developed areas. Entities receiving funds for assessment or clean-up may not have contributed to the abandonment or contamination of the project site. Any structures built on sites benefiting from such brownfield funds are strongly encouraged to meet green building standards. Financial incentives to build green will be given throughout Columbus at the basic level of reimbursing the fee required for green building certification, and higher incentive levels if development occurs within the City’s urban core.   In 2010 program year, $1,000,000 is allocated toward the Green Columbus Fund grant program. To achieve a balanced distribution of grant funds, the total grants in the first component (site clean-up) cannot exceed $750,000, and the total grants in the second component (green buildings) cannot exceed $500,000. Individual site clean-up grant awards will be capped at $200,000, and individual green building grant awards will be capped at triple the USGBC Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification fee or $50,000 (whichever is the lesser amount). the City will reimburse 100% of the cost of the LEED certification fee. The minimum requirement for receiving City reimbursement from this program will be the achievement of LEED-BDC certification resulting in achievement of at least 8 of 12 credits listed below from that approved certification.   The twelve (12) credits selected reflect goals of particular importance to the City of Columbus. Some would result in direct physical or financial benefits to the City, such as reduced water use, extending the life of the landfill and reducing storm water runoff. Others contribute to achieving City policy goals of reducing greenhouse gas emissions in accordance with the U.S. Mayor’s Climate Protection Agreement as well as the City’s growth policy to “growing inward with a passion and outward with a plan.” These 12 key LEED-BDC credits are:   SSc1 Site Selection SSc2 Development Density & Community Connectivity SSc3 Brownfield Redevelopment SSc4.1 Alternative Transportation: Public Transportation Access SSc6.1 Stormwater Design: Quantity Control SSc6.2 Stormwater Design: Quality Control SSc7.2 Heat Island Effect: Roof WEc1 Water Efficient Landscaping: Reduce by 50% WEc3 Water Use Reduction: Reduce by 30% EAc1 Optimize Energy Performance: achieve at least 20% cost savings for new buildings, 16% cost savings for existing building renovations MRc2 Construction Waste Management: Divert 50% from Disposal MRc4 Recycled Content: 10% (post-consumer + ½ pre-consumer)   To qualify for the Columbus Green Building Incentive Grant, a building would need to achieve LEED-BDC certification, while also achieving at least eight (8) of the twelve (12) selected credits listed above. The applicant would then be fully reimbursed for its certification fee, as determined by receipt of payment to the USGBC (at member’s rate).   Opportunities for Increased Incentives   As indicated below, there will be three ways to significantly increase the magnitude of this incentive, up to a cap of 300% (or triple) the cost of the certification fee.   Meeting more than 8 of the selected credits, at a rate of 25% more for each extra credit: 8 credits 100% reimbursement 9 credits 125% reimbursement 10 credits 150 % reimbursement 11 credits 175% reimbursement 12 credits 200 % reimbursement   Achieving a higher level of LEED-BDC certification: Certified 100% reimbursement Silver 150% reimbursement Gold or Platinum 200% reimbursement   Building in a region defined as inner city: Within the City of Columbus 100% reimbursement Within 1950 Boundaries or CDBG Service Area 200% reimbursement   Up to the 300% cap these incentive multipliers can be added to each other. For example, Silver with 10 City credits (100%+50%+25%+25%) would equal 200% (doubling) of the fee. Being within the 1950 borders or CDBG area alone would add 100%, bringing the incentive to 200% of the fee. You can mix and match in any way, with the limitation that the total incentive is capped at 300%, which represents a significant tripling of the fee. There will also be a per building dollar cap of $50,000.   The approach to green building incentives outlined above has important benefits for the City of Columbus. By delegating the task of certifying green performance to an entity that has established national credibility and proven administrative capacity, the City can avoid disputes and avoid increasing personnel or staff capacity. The specific focus on the 12 selected LEED criteria will help achieve City policies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and grow sensibly, extend the life of nearby landfills, and reducing storm-water runoff and water usage. In addition, utilizing national criteria will allow the City to compare our progress toward sustainability with that of other U.S. cities.

    36. 36. Represented by Tom Snearey and Todd Zalenski Sustainability is our present and future responsibility; it preserves our earth’s resources, provides safer healing environments, and preserves the future of our environment for continued generations. The design and construction industry is largely responsible for contributing to the factors that threaten the earth’s resources and its fragile ecological balance. As architects and designers, it is our obligation to institute change within our industry, our firm, and our personal lives, and to start halting and reversing the cycle of ecological abuse, contributing to a new foundation of healthy places for future generations.
    37. 37. Represented by Rob Meyer Porter Wright recognizes that it is necessary and appropriate to continue on a progressive path of improved sustainability.  Our Sustainability Policy sets forth our commitments in three interrelated areas: economic success of our organization, social responsibility, and environmental responsibility. We will strive to achieve our vision of performance and track our progress and challenges in fulfilling it.
