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."
