Florence Mailboxes and LEED Certification
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)
At Florence Manufacturing, we continually strive to use and manage natural resources responsibly, conserve energy in our daily operations, and minimize material waste in the manufacturing of our products. We are also dedicated to assisting our customers in meeting the goals of sustainable-design projects and those adhering to the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System v3.0, which is increasingly the standard for new project design. By specifying Florence products, potential LEED points may be available in the following categories:
Materials and Resources Credit 2: Construction Waste Management intends to divert construction and demolition debris from disposal in landfills and incineration facilities. Redirect recyclable recovered resources back to the manufacturing process and reusable materials to appropriate sites.
Florence products and packaging are 100% recyclable and may therefore contribute to the Construction Waste Management Credit.
Materials and Resources Credit 4: Recycled Content intends to increase demand for building products that incorporate recycled content materials, thereby reducing impacts resulting from extraction and processing of virgin materials.
Florence postal specialty products for new construction are manufactured principally from aluminum which conservatively includes 20% pre-consumer and 30% post-consumer recycled content (internally generated scrap is not recognized under LEED and has therefore been excluded). Thus, 40% of the total dollars spent on these products may contribute to the Recycled Content Credit.
Materials and Resources Credit 5: Regional Materials intends to increase demand for building materials and products that are extracted and manufactured within the region thereby supporting the use of indigenous resources and reducing the environmental impacts resulting from transportation.
Florence products used on projects within 500 miles of Manhattan, KS may contribute to the Regional Materials credit.
Regional Priority Credit 1: Regional Priority intends to provide an incentive for the achievement of credits that address geographically-specific environmental priorities.
Florence products may also contribute to the Regional Priority bonus points. (See the LEED list of state regions for Regional Priorities requirements in your area.)
