Fidelity Introduces New Product

May 17, 2011

Fidelity National Financial announced the availability of the LEED Project Certification Data Report for LEED certified properties in the United States and abroad.

"FNF is proud to lead the industry in introducing our exclusive product for LEED Certification due diligence. This unique collaboration with the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI), allows us to provide new solutions to support the emerging market of sustainable real estate and alternative energy development," announced Randy Quirk, president of Fidelity National Financial.

The LEED Project Certification Data Report will be issued at the request of owners, lenders, buyers, tenants, attorneys, appraisers and other stakeholders of certain commercial properties that are certified under USGBC's LEED Green Building Rating System by the Green Building Certification Institute.

Jeff Howell, a LEED accredited professional and Fidelity National Financial's National director of sustainable products, stated that, "The three key components of our report will confirm certification of projects under LEED that the project points earned towards LEED certification were awarded by the Green Building Certification Institute, and that there is no registered challenge to the certification. This is not currently available from a single source or as a defensible item for the LEED due diligence process."

"Product development is a key component of our overall FNF Sustainable Strategies initiative, and our LEED Data Report creates unique value to any stakeholder involved with a LEED-certified property," said Michele Skupic, vice president of FNF sustainable strategies. "Our product is unique in the market because for the first time all of the key details of a LEED certified project are revealed in one written report to support the ever-growing need for LEED due diligence in a lease, sale, or investment transaction. It is an exciting product to introduce to support sustainable real estate."
