Custom’s Build Green Commitment


LEED® CERTIFICATION


Most Custom products help contribute to LEED certification in at least one of three categories:

• Low-emitting materials that contribute to indoor environmental quality
• Recycled content
• Local manufacturing and raw materials from within 500 miles of manufacturing site


RECYCLED MATERIALS


Custom uses recycled materials whenever possible in manufacturing our tile and stone installation products. Recycled materials help conserve natural resources and reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills.


LIGHTWEIGHT PRODUCTS


Custom’s complete line of lightweight products conserves energy by using less fuel for transport. Also, many of these products contain recycled materials.


LOGISTICS

Regional production of products at 10 locations throughout the country ensures many products will be manufactured within 500 miles of your project site – reducing transportation emissions.


ENVIRONMENTALLY RESPONSIBLE PLANTS


Custom adheres to tight, self-imposed requirements to minimize waste and pollution at every facility, and all plants follow stringent energy conservation guidelines. Waste is reduced through source reduction and recycling, and disposed of by safe, environmentally responsible means. Solid airborne particles in Custom’s plants are recycled to so that they don’t end up in landfills, and waste is never permitted to enter the waterways. Custom conducts regular environmental assessments at each facility, seeking ways to operate more cleanly and efficiently, and reviews environmental impact as an important part of corporate planning.
