Comfort Systems USA Energy Services was named as a certified green contractor by the Associated Builders and Contractors.

ABC’s green contractor certification program recognizes construction companies that implement green practices and principles in the workplace, including headquarters, branch offices and jobsite office complexes.

To achieve certification from ABC’s national green building committee, Comfort Systems USA Energy Services submitted an application detailing its green efforts and underwent a third-party onsite assessment.

Comfort Systems has headquarters in Windsor, Conn., and an office in Little Rock, Ark.

“ABC members have been on the forefront of the green building movement since its inception, but ABC also believes in stretching green achievements beyond the construction process and into the workplace,” said J. Douglas Hunter, chairman of the ABC national green building committee and president of the Hunter Group Inc., in Concord, Mass. “The certified green contractor program is another step in ABC’s goal to provide support and recognition for those members who are setting an example for the industry by promoting green practices within the company and those members who would like to create sustainability in the workplace as well as in the construction practices.”

W. Brewster Earle, president of Comfort Systems USA Energy Services, said that earning the certification reinforces its commitment to customers.

“Our clients depend on us to improve their energy use and sustainable practices,” he said. “We are definitely committed to ‘walking the talk’ and becoming an ABC-certified green contractor validates that. Our office and employees are 100 percent committed to sustainable practices in our workplace.”
