S3 Green Choices

Green Choices

We partner with contractors to institute Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design LEED® Green Building Rating Systems for a wide range of municipal, residential, and commercial projects.

LEED promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five key areas of human and environmental health, including sustainable site development, water saving, energy efficiency, material selection, and indoor environmental quality. We work with a number of vendors who use some amount of post, pre, or a combination of recycled materials in the production of their products. This process can include post consumer-recycled material following public use.

The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) is a 501 C3 nonprofit organization that certifies sustainable businesses, homes, hospitals, schools, and neighborhoods. USGBC is dedicated to expanding green building practices and education, and its LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System™.

LEED Accredited Professional (LEED Aps) have demonstrated a thorough understanding of green building techniques, the LEED Green Building Rating System, and the certification process. The LEED AP program is administered by the Green Building Certification Institution (GBCI), which was established with the support of USGBC to allow for objective, balanced management of the credentialing program.
