Smart Sustainable Solutions /Other/Medeco/2_Header/Sustainability.jpg Minimizing Our Environmental Impact Sustainable products provide environmental, social and economic benefits while protecting public health and the environment—from the extraction of raw materials until the final disposal. Today, Medeco is leading efforts to reduce the environmental impact of our manufacturing processes while providing customers with smart, sustainable building solutions. We have significantly reduced our carbon footprint, lowered our energy consumption and drastically cut our water use. We're also proud that products made in our Salem, Virginia plant use recycled and regional materials! What began as a purposeful way to join the green building movement has resulted in a cultural shift to doing what's right—not only for the environment—but also for our community, our employees and customers alike. Medeco has embraced sustainability wholeheartedly and it shows. We've now received multiple product certifications from GreenCircle Certified—the leading third-party validator of sustainable product claims—and we've published Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) and Health Product Declarations (HPDs) on many of our products. It’s exciting to see the net results. Together, we've minimized our environmental impact while satisfying our customers' demands for transparency.
