ACME Panel Chooses Green Building with Structural Insulated Panels
At ACME Panel we are committed to reducing our carbon footprint, and helping you reduce yours.
- What is a carbon footprint?
- Carbon footprint is the measure of the impact our activities have on climate change. A building’s carbon footprint measures the amount of greenhouse gases produced through burning fossil fuels for electricity and heating and the amount of energy needed to produce products.
- What is Green Building?
- Green building is the practice of minimizing the impact a building has on the natural environment. Although there are numerous theories and rating systems proposing how you can accomplish this, they all share several clear goals:
- Reduced Energy Consumption — Energy is in high demand, and the processes used to generate energy often produce carbon dioxide emissions. Decreasing energy and fossil fuel use in buildings is important to prevent large-scale climate change.
- Material and Resource Conservation — Green designers and builders select building materials and methods that reduce the amount of natural resources required to construct a building.
- Healthy Indoor Environment — With people spending 90% of their time indoors, buildings should create a safe environment for occupants, free from mold, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and other harmful airborne pollutants.
- Water Conservation and pollution prevention — Water-saving systems limit the use of this important natural resource and prevent water pollution that can damage natural ecosystems.
- Site Planning — Careful site and infrastructure development will minimize water and air pollution
