Established by the U.S. Green Building Council, LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) provides a concise framework for practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions. A LEED verification ensures that a project’s design improves energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts.
LEED philosophy and programs are an integral part of Republic Services’ approach to saving energy, recycling and protecting our environment. Some of the Company’s Waste Stream Advisors
nationwide are LEED certified and have demonstrated their knowledge of green building technologies, best practices and the rapidly evolving LEED Rating Systems.
