NFRC's Executive Director Speaks During Earth Day Events in Washington, D.C.
April 23, 2009

The National Fenestration Rating Council's (NFRC) executive director, Jim Benney, spoke during the Senate Energy and Environmental Fair, which took place yesterday as part of the weeklong Earth Day events in Washington, D.C.

According to an NFRC announcement, Benney did his part to promote education by speaking about the organization's rating and labeling system and how it plays an integral role in helping people make more energy-efficient choices.

"Buildings currently use about 40 percent of all the energy generated in the United States," Benney said. "By educating people to look for the NFRC label, we helped them understand how to increase the energy efficiency of buildings thereby reducing our dependence on fossil fuels and the carbon emissions related to global warming."
