About this certification
Individuals certified as a Certified Emissions Reduction Leader for Commercial Buildings deliver integrated building energy retrofits (IBERs) for commercial buildings. IBERs are a total building retrofit, integrating a range of technologies to deliver substantial energy savings. They are often complicated projects that require managing multiple technical professionals from various construction and energy efficiency fields. The Certified Emissions Reduction Leader for Commercial Buildings certification doesn’t certify that the professional has all of these technical skills, but instead recognises individuals that have the knowledge and capabilities to lead and manage people that possess these skills, enabling the certified professional to deliver an integrated building energy retrofit.
