DASNY: Leading by example in operational energy use optimization.

DASNY finances and builds the health, education and scientific facilities that form the backbone of sustainable communities. DASNY’s knowledgeable staff works tirelessly to create solutions that support the goals of its clients and New York State, including increasing energy efficiency in public buildings and significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Dozens of DASNY projects have earned LEED certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), including Lehman College’s Science Facility Phase 1 (LEED Platinum), University at Albany’s Mohawk Tower (LEED Gold) and Buffalo State’s Tower 1 (LEED Silver). This commitment to reducing energy use is helping build a cleaner, more resilient, and affordable energy system for all New Yorkers.

DASNY is also learning that the Process needs to change, and we need to focus on continual improvements to our work. See this article, written by a DASNY staff, for more information on process | The Process of Changing the Process
