The US Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program has been driving construction of environmentally sound and sustainable projects more than ever before. While the US Green Building Council does not certify or endorse individual products or materials, how they’re made and where you source them can help your project meet its LEED certification objective.
With up to 60% total recycled content in our steel products (no less than 25%), and our North Carolina based manufacturing plant, specifying Penco on a project can contribute directly to earning Materials & Resources credits.
We’ve even set up a dedicated e-mail address to support architects, contractors and distributors seeking complete LEED information. Just complete our LEED Information Request Form (found within the Distributor Portal) and submit it to . We’ll respond with a document tailored to the project that details how we can contribute to certification.
Need help on how to submit the form? Click the LEED Inquiry Sheet link, complete the required fields and save a copy to your documents folder. It will help you if you save it with a name like “LEED_my project name” for future reference. Simply send that new document as an attachment to an email addressed to and we’ll handle the rest.
Additionally, UL Environment's GREENGUARD Certification Program has awarded Penco Products with GREENGUARD and GREENGUARD Gold Certifications. Learn more here.
