LEED

How can Walker products contribute to projects that are targeting LEED certification? Under the LEED rating system, only projects are rated. There is no rating or certification system for raw materials or suppliers. However, Walker Glass can help users of our products, and more specifically building owners, accumulate LEED points.

Green design not only makes a positive impact on public health and the environment, it can also reduce operating costs and enhance building spaces and surroundings. LEED fits into this initiative by providing rating systems that are voluntary and based on generally accepted energy and environmental principles. LEED rating systems are developed by U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) committees, in adherence with USGBC policies and procedures guiding the development and maintenance of rating systems. They are applicable to new commercial construction and major renovation projects.

You will find on this page the LEED credits our acid-etched glass, acid-etched mirror and un-etched mirror products can contribute to.
