Going Green

DRC Marketing Group is joining the trend to "Go Green" and we want you and your customers to GO GREEN with us. The term "green design" has a wide range of definitions, from a holistic approach to design and construction to more specific technologies or strategies. Within this spectrum, green building design strives to balance environmental responsibility, resource efficiency, occupant comfort and well-being, and community sensitivity.

In 1993, the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) was formed and the search for a system to rate and qualify "green" buildings began. After researching and analyzing several successful European systems, the design to create a separate U.S. green building system was made. The first LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) pilot program, launched in 1998, has since evolved into a comprehensive program that is recognized and implemented by design professionals all over the country.

Who Uses LEED?

Architects, real estate professionals, facility managers, engineers, interior designers, landscape architects, construction managers, lenders and government officials all use LEED. State and local governments across the country are adopting LEED for public-owned and public-funded buildings; there are LEED initiatives in federal agencies, including the Departments of Defense, Agriculture, Energy, and State.   To receive Energy Star approval, a unit must use no more than 40 watts per hour per cubic foot. The government shows a listing of FWE's approved products at: http://www.energystar.gov/ia/products/prod_lists/HFHC_prod_list.pdf
