Custom's Emerald System includes Carbon Credits
March 24, 2011
Custom Building Products has launched its Emerald System of products. These products feature recycled material content and low VOCs, are manufactured regionally to reduce their energy footprint, and comply with all major green building initiatives, including ANSI (American National Standards Institute), CALGreen (California Green Building Standards Code) and USGBC (United States Green Building Council).
Additionally, when a project using Emerald System Products is registered for a warranty, Custom Building Products will purchase Carbon Credits from TerraPass to offset the amount of CO2 created from the cement used in its products.
“With the introduction of the Emerald System, we are taking action today to make green compliance easier and move forward on reducing CO2 emissions,” said Steve Taylor, Custom Building Products’ director of technical marketing.
