Are you qualified to be a Green Traveler’s customer?

August 15th, 2012 by admin

In 2010, the Green Discount became available to customers whose home is “certified green” by the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) organization.  The LEED is a third-party certification program and the nationally accepted benchmark for the design and construction of high performance green buildings and homes.

The Green Discount is only applied to a policy if the customer meets the LEED certification requirements.

What’s Changing?

Beginning July 27, 2012, in order for the Green Home Discount to apply, Travelers now requires a copy of a LEED certificate to be sent to the Business Center for all new business policies.  Within the quote & issue system, the following message will appear to promo you to submit a copy of the certificate to the business center:  “Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certificate is required to receive GREEN credit. ” These policies will be referred to the business center to assist you in verifying the LEED certification.

Please Note: An Energy Star certification does not qualify for the Green Home discount.

We’d like to take this time to remind you that the Green Home Upgrade endorsement is also available. With this upgrade, you can add an extra layer of protection to your home or condo policy that can help you repair or rebuild with green materials and methods in the event of a covered loss.

For questions, please contact us.

As always, thank your or your continued business and support.
