Fireman’s Fund Insurance Co., the first property and casualty insurance company to offer green insurance to the U.S. commercial marketplace, is now offering its policyholders with Energy Star buildings a five percent discount.
Currently, there are more than 10,000 Energy Star buildings. Buildings that have earned the Energy Star typically use 35 percent less energy and emit 35 percent less carbon dioxide into the atmosphere than average buildings. Building types eligible to earn the Energy Star label include offices, bank branches, financial centers, retail stores, data centers, courthouses, hospitals, hotels, K-12 schools, medical offices, supermarkets, dormitories, houses of worship, and warehouses.
In addition, Fireman’s Fund risk services consultants can help property owners benchmark their buildings’ energy and water consumption with Energy Star’s Portfolio Manager tool. With the tool, Fireman’s Fund risk services consultants can identify under-performing buildings and work with policyholders to set related investment priorities, develop energy management goals, and track performance and savings over time.
