WHAT IS LEED®?
LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is an internationally recognized green building certification system. Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) in March 2000, LEED provides building owners and operators with a framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions.
LEED promotes sustainable building and development practices through a suite of rating systems that recognize projects which implement strategies for better environmental and health performance.

NETAFIM SUSTAINABILITY COMMITMENT
Netafim USA supports the strategies of LEED for achieving a prosperous and sustainable future through cost-efficient and energy-saving green buildings. The LEED system does not certify individual products, however, the combination of products contributes to the overall building project's earning of LEED credits.
Netafim USA's Techline®, Techline® CV, Techline® RW and Techline® EZ and Polyethylene tubing product lines support the LEEDs MR Credit 4 category. These product lines contribute to earning two points in this area as they are produced with at least 20% recycled content that is comprised of a minimum of 5% post-consumer and 30% pre-consumer content.
