BURLINGTON, ON, JANUARY 19, 2023/insPRESS/ – Hudson Restoration Inc., a leading boutique and eco-friendly disaster restoration company has partnered with Built Green Canada to further enhance sustainable options for insurer clients and property owner customers.

Working in partnership with Built Green Canada, the initiative’s focus is to provide property owners interested in making greener choices when they rebuild, to receive expanded guidance and support, access to green building experts and ultimately receive a BUILT GREEN® certification, through Hudson’s disaster restoration process directly.

Residential, commercial, and institutional combine to make the building sector Canada’s third-highest greenhouse gas (GHG) emitter. Currently green and sustainable building is primarily considered when undertaking new construction or planned renovation. This partnership expands those opportunities to property owners who have experienced a disaster and wish to make sustainable choices during the insurance led / supported restoration process.

This program also helps Hudson support their insurer clients meet their own environmental, net zero and supply chain sustainability goals.

“After a disaster, many of our forward-looking customers want to use the opportunity to rebuild their homes or businesses more sustainably,” says Margo Malowney, VP of Business Development & Culture at Hudson. “Hudson is constantly improving sustainability throughout our own operations, and this partnership allows us to continue to lead in this space and offer the same to our customers.”

“Historically, Built Green Canada has had their focus on partnering with builders, developers and renovators,” says Nick Hudson, Director of Operations at Hudson. “We’ve worked closely with the great folks at Built Green to reimagine the approach in order to provide certifications to our customers in property damage restoration. It’s taken some time, and we are extremely excited with where we’ve ended up. We can’t wait to kick off the New Year and begin offering this to policyholders.”

This partnership also enhances Built Green’s visibility in the Ontario market as well as expands on their program offerings.

“We’re excited to work with Nick, Margo and the team at Hudson. Our BUILT GREEN® programs continue to grow and working with Hudson further establishes us in the Ontario market,” says Jenifer Christenson, CEO of Built Green Canada. “When discussions began, it was immediately clear that they were already ahead of the curve when it comes to incorporating sustainable practices within their own operations—it was a natural fit. Given the increase and severity of natural disasters, largely due to climate change, the restoration industry has a big role to play in contributing to a more sustainably built environment. With natural disasters top-of-mind for us, Hudson’s reach out was serendipitous. We’re so impressed with their progressive, can-do attitude.”

This partnership continues Hudson’s vision of leading the restoration industry into an eco friendly future. To learn more about Hudson’s BUILT GREEN® restoration projects, email us at info@hudsonrestoration.com or follow us on our socials for future announcements.
