From design for environment R&D to certifications to community outreach, our planet is our responsibility. We recognize that in order to thrive, we must give back to our community and be respectful of the impact we have on the planet. Whether it’s community service, utilizing a Design for Environment new product process, or constructing our own facilities to LEED standards, Nucraft team members drive sustainable solutions throughout our business.
Nucraft supports responsible environmental policies and practices. In every business decision, we consider the ecological, social and economic effects, and here are some examples:
- We buy hardwood veneers grown in U.S. forests managed for sustainable yields
- Our finishes are formulated for employee safety and low-environmental impact
- We meet, and often exceed, all government emissions standards
- Our Environmental Management System (EMS) practices reduce waste and promote recycling throughout our workplace
- We contribute corporate resources to organizations that share our respect and commitment to the environment
Our products are manufactured to meet one or more of the following credit requirements of the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED Rating Systems. (Please reference individual Environmental Statements for product-specific attributes)
When designing our new headquarters, we wanted more than just a functional workspace. We wanted a building reflective of Nucraft’s values and our commitment to LEED standards. Click on the documents below for a summary of how we attained LEED-NC silver certification and for a brochure highlighting the green elements of our new offices.
The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Rating System is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction, and operation of high-performance green buildings. Nucraft products are designed and manufactured to meet multiple LEED criteria. Detailed Environmental Statements for each product line can be downloaded from both individual product pages or from the Product Information page under Design Resources on this website, providing quick and easy access to the green attributes of our products and the LEED criteria they meet.
