Does your facility demonstrate a commitment to environmental responsibility? Most Fortune 1,000 companies (your competitors) have already gone green or are pursuing a LEED Certification.
LEED or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design is a leading edge system for certifying the greenest performing buildings in the world. A major factor in achieving a green building is its energy consumption. In fact, more than 70% of the points needed to earn a LEED Existing Building certification relate to energy & atmosphere.
Trio’s LEED Accredited Professionals will conduct a feasibility study to determine if your facility meets the Energy Star energy performance guidelines for a LEED certification.
ENERGY STAR is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy helping us all save money and protect the environment through energy efficient products and practices. Energy Star has become the nationally-recognized benchmark for energy efficiency.
