Vectair Systems Inc. joins US Green Building Council
Vectair Systems has announced that its North American business, Vectair Systems, Inc. has become a member of the USGBC (US Green Building Council). This is in keeping with its commitment to the environment and a sustainable way of living.
The USGBC is 'committed to a sustainable, prosperous future through LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), the leading programme for green buildings and communities worldwide'.
Vectair Systems is now listed on the online directory under membership number 3980464355041034. The USGBC's programme, LEED, focuses on green buildings. It is one of - if not the most - widely used green building rating systems in the world. Available for most building, community and home projects, LEED provides a framework to create healthy, sustainable & cost-saving buildings that are green and cost efficient. LEED buildings help to save energy, water, and generate less waste while supporting human health.
Over the years, Vectair Systems has put a lot of money, effort and research into creating environmentally-friendly products that help provide a more sustainable world. The multi-award winning Vectair V-Air Solid is VOC exempt, non-hazardous and made from 100% recyclable materials. It has become the most widely recognised passive system in the world and it's mainly due to the low environmental impact it has.
Vectair Systems is also leading the way in its approach to carbon footprint and offset 55 tonnes of carbon dioxide as recently as July. This has helped sustainable projects all over the world in locations such as Central America, India and the UK. Vectair V-Air Solid is also now carbon neutral.
Vectair makes a cash contribution to a range of carbon offset projects recognised to international standards, including the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS), Gold Standard Voluntary Emission Reductions (VER) and Certified Emission Reductions (CER). These all meet the Quality Assurance Standard for Carbon Offsetting following a footprint calculation and BSI's PAS 2060 specification on carbon neutrality.
