 was prepared by Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrion, Jr. to encourage the New or! City "anufacturing industry to beco"e "ore “green# by "a!ing safer, healthier, and en$iron"entally responsible building products for de$elopers. %his report is a study about ways to increase “green "anufacturing# and “green building.# “&reen "anufacturing# describes a "eans of "anufacturing that di"inishes waste and  pollution through a special process of designing a product that is less har"ful to the en$iron"ent. “&reen building# refers to increasing the efficiency with which buildings use “energy, water, and "aterials,# and, “reducing building i"pacts on hu"an health and the en$iron"ent through better design, construction, operation, "aintenance# of  buildings.

$It’s Not Easy Being Green"# 
 begins by detailing efforts currently being done by the Borough President to encourage "ore green buildings and the "ain proble"s that exists to pre$ent greater nu"bers of green building. Afterwards, it outlines the benefits of green  building and green "anufacturing( and assesses the current conditions of the building) related "anufacturing industry in New or! City. Next, two green "anufacturers in the Bronx are exa"ined( concerns raised by de$elopers and "anufacturers about green construction "aterials are addressed( and existing efforts to help "anufacturers and de$elopers beco"e "ore en$iron"entally responsible are analy*ed. +inally, the report reco""ends proposals to pro$ide "ore resources, reduce costs and ser$e as incenti$es for de$elopers to buy green construction "aterials and for "anufacturers to "a!e green construction "aterials. “&reen construction "aterials# are en$iron"entally friendly goods that are beneficial to the building occupants and "anage"ent i""ediately or o$er the life of the building. As a result, they are resource efficient, and ha$e far)reaching global i"pacts. n$iron"entally responsible products fall under a nu"ber of categories such as engineered woods, paints, construction adhesi$es, carpets, architectural sealants, and furniture.
