LEEDing The Way


Many businesses are looking to buy or use products from distributors and manu- factures that embrace sustainability, while balancing financial targets. One of the most direct ways that a company can posi- tively impact the environment is through using sustainable paper products in their facilities.


LEED v4 is about to launch and one of the biggest changes is the amount of green products businesses must purchase to earn the Green Cleaning Products and Materi- als credit.


This credit covers the procurement of chemicals, paper and can liners, and at least 75% of purchases (based on cost) must meet specific environmental stan- dards, compared to the 30% required in 2009.


LEED v4 has added additional certifica-


tions to choose from, including the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification for fiber procurement. Kruger Products was one of the first North America tissue manufacturers to achieve FSC certifica- tion, and today carries one of the largest portfolios of FSC-certified products in North America. “FSC certification assures that products bearing the FSC logo come from well- managed forests, responsible sources and/ or recycled materials,” explains Steven Sage, Vice President, Sustainability & In- novation, Kruger Products.


Jan/san professionals can immediately help customers meet the new guidelines with more than 50 FSC-certified tissue and products offered by Kruger Products, including popular products from the Em- bassy, Esteem and White Swan line-ups. “Kruger Products doesn’t charge a


premium for these certified products, so you can help your company achieve its sustainability goals and work within operating budgets,” says Sage. LEED continues to have greater impact in the marketplace, and is an opportunity for businesses to position themselves as green leaders. Kruger Products’ large portfolio of sustainable tissue and paper product offerings allows businesses to improve their environmental stewardship while operating within budgetary limits.
