Theodore Roosevelt stated in 1910 that “The nation behaves well if it treats the natural resources as assets which it must turn over to the next generation increased and not impaired in value.” As members of the U.S. Green Building Council and an EPA Energy Star Partner, we believe that improving energy efficiency in buildings is a very important first step in achieving this goal.
The USGBC states it this way. “[We must] transform the way buildings and communities are designed, built and operated, enabling an environmentally and socially responsible, healthy, and prosperous environment that improves the quality of life.”
Quality of life and work and the responsible utilization of resources within a building are the challenge for LEED designers and the HVAC industry as a whole because most of our lives are spent in buildings. Our 8-page brochure, available from your local Ruskin representative, includes the many Ruskin products that help achieve LEED 2009 credits in the areas of
- Energy & Atmosphere
- Sustainable Sites
- Materials & Resources
- Indoor Environmental Quality
