GREEN POINTS: As the nation’s first commercial green bank, New Resource Bank offers special loan programs to green developers and finances residential and commercial solar installations. It recently was selected as a preferred financial partner of Solar Santa Monica, a solar campaign operated by the city of Santa Monica, Calif. Certified LEED Gold for New Construction from the Washington, D.C.-based U.S. Green Building Council, the building’s desks are manufactured from certified sustainable forest products and rapidly renewable bamboo. Much of the office furniture was purchased used. Cabinets are made from 100 percent pre-consumer recycled wood fiber, and the fluorescent lighting is controlled by motion-sensor switches and daylight control.
