The U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification, also known as LEED, was designed to provide precise and measurable methods for green building design. For beverage plants like our operations, certification involves water safeguards, water efficiency, nontoxic building materials and maintenance, resource efficiencies, waste reduction, minimal impact exterior lighting, indoor environmental quality, and constructed wetlands.
Today, we have 11 LEED-certified facilities that cover 3.7 million square feet and divert 22,000 tons of waste material from landfills to Waste-to-Energy when the plants were built.
As of 2011 our nine facilities have collectively reduced:
• Energy Use: 29 million KWH
• Water Use: 1.3 million gallons
• Solid Waste: 42 million lbs.
• Emissions: 40.5 million lbs. of CO2
