NETAFIM SUSTAINABILITY COMMITMENT
Netafim USA supports the strategies of LEED for achieving a prosperous and sustainable future through cost-efficient and energy-saving green buildings. The LEED system does not certify individual products, however, the combination of products contributes to the overall building project’s earning of LEED credits.
Netafim USA’s Techline®CV, Techline® CV, Techline® RW and Techline® EZ and Polyethylene tubing product lines support the LEEDs MR Credit 4 category. These product lines contribute to earning two points in this area as they are produced with at least 20% recycled content that is comprised of a minimum of 5% post-consumer and 30% pre-consumer content.
LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is an internationally-recognized green building certification system. Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) in March 2000, LEED provides building owners and operators with a framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions.
LEED promotes sustainable building and development practices through a suite of rating systems that recognize projects which implement strategies for better environmental and health performance.
