If we are about to unveil a new product to the world, we keep in mind that the class of our products is a reflection upon the experience we are providing to our customers.
With the full force of the USG Boral’s ME core competencies in standards creation, verification, education and high-performance building data tracking, we are committed to speeding the evolution of green building codes far and wide.
Green building strategies are increasingly being introduced into traditional building codes, addressing the cross-cutting categories of site selection, water conservation, energy efficiency, renewables, indoor environmental quality and resource conservation.
Strong and successful green building code has a vital role helping create the best communities for today without compromising the needs of future generations.
LEED and codes are not mutually exclusive. As traditional building code evolves to include sustainability measures that upward movement helps redefine leadership and what LEED can do to transform the market. These forces work together, fueling higher levels of building performance and sustainability.
We believe at USG Boral that it falls under the responsibility of every decision maker to:
- Recognize and reward green codes in LEED
- Support a model code that has direct connections to LEED
- Providing education and resources to help speed code adoption
- Innovating through technology and data tracking
