What Does it Mean to Go Green?
The construction industry makes a big impact on the natural environment, human health, and the economy. For this reason, the green building industry is working to increase efficiency in the use of resources while reducing the impact on the environment. By adopting green building strategies, you can maximize both economic and environmental performance.
The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) created the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), a rating system comprised of standards used to measure and promote environmentally sustainable construction. Green construction methods can be integrated into buildings at any stage, from design and construction, to renovation and deconstruction.
Included in green building initiatives is the use of aluminum as today’s material of choice. Aluminum is recyclable, reusable, sustainable, and versatile. In fact, eighty percent of aluminum used in construction is recycled at some point during the life-cycle of the project. The Aluminum Extruders Council recognizes the use of extruded aluminum as an environmentally responsible approach within the rapidly growing green building industry.
