GREEN INITIATIVES……. LEED CREDIT POTENTIAL
Forward–thinking companies, like Baxter Precast, have embraced Green Practices to satisfy customers, comply with regulations and promote positive community relations. Baxter Precast is developing cost-effective internal processes that encourage environmental stewardship, and we are increasingly tapping revenue-generating market opportunities for products and services where customers are hungry for Green.
The most important driver of business challenges and opportunities in our lifetimes (and our children’s) will likely be the Green revolution. The challenge is that the earth’s resources are limited, but its population is expected to grow by 50 percent over the next four decades. This will create opportunities for every company to develop products and services to address escalating growth and gradually minimize the impact of those inhabiting the planet. As leading companies embark down the Green road, they’ll transition from a position of being aware of their environment responsibility to one of inculcating Green as a core value and relying on Green internal processes and product/service offerings as a core competency, but only through research, planning, action and investment can this happen.
What is LEED……….
The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System is a voluntary, consensus-based, market driven building rating system based on existing proven technology. The LEED Green Building Rating System represents the U.S. Green Building Council’s effort to provide a national standard for what constitutes a “green building.” Through its use as a design guideline and third-party certification tool, it aims to improve occupant well-being, environmental performance and economic returns of buildings using established and innovative practices, standards and technologies.
In LEED, points are awarded for environmentally friendly actions taken during design, construction and use phases. Each of the five main categories of LEED consists of a number of credits which can earn points.
