Background Discussion
Manatee County was awarded certification through the Florida Green Building Coalition  (FGBC) in 2011 because of the numerous green efforts that were implemented throughout the County.  After the initial certification, the County realized many other sustainability initiatives have occurred and made the decision to apply for Gold status, which was achieved in 2014.  FGBC requires recertification every five years and the percentage needed to maintain gold had increased considerably.  Key players in the beginning of the process included members of the Green Team; however, the effort given to reach Platinum status was due mostly to the hiring of an Energy and Sustainability Coordinator.  The Coordinator collected departmental information of various programs and projects to submit for the certification with the hopes of maintaining Gold, but in the end realized we could perhaps receive Platinum status.
