GAF is sponsoring the new Certified Green Distributor Program, an extension of the highly successful Certified Green Dealer Program. The Certified Green Distributor Program now offers online, on-demand training, green certification and marketing support to the nation’s one-step distributors.
The training is web-based and covers five topics that are central to one-step distributors: Air Sealing, Cladding, Roofing, Insulation, and Roof Shingle Recycling. Each course module is accompanied by a downloadable study guide.
GAF’s sponsorship is just one of the many steps that the company has taken to support green-building training and roof recycling initiatives. In addition to sponsoring the Certified Green Distributor Program, GAF has instituted highly regarded internal sustainability efforts. GAF has also launched the Certified Green Roofer Program, which includes a multiyear sponsorship of ShingleRecycling.org, a site that helps contractors and distributors connect with qualified shingle recyclers across the U.S. and Canada. Its dedicated webpage for green building, offers a wide range of related resources, including tools and information to educate and inform roofers and contractors about the importance of cool roofs, roof ventilation, and green codes and rating systems.
