LEED® & Our Triple Bottom Line Commitment

Aeroflex USA is a dedicated partner in the global-sustainability movement. As such, we are steadfast in our support of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) certification program.

Our AEROFLEX® brand of EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) elastomeric closed cell insulation not only helps project teams meet owner project requirements, such as PVC-free. It also embodies our ongoing quest for more environmentally responsible manufacturing. We even have an in-house sustainability consultant to support project teams in their pursuit of LEED® certification for their clients.   

Aeroflex USA makes every effort to source materials that minimize hazards to the environment and to human health. Most of our products are manufactured in the U.S. with an energy-efficient and safe production process that yields minimal waste.  And our products help optimize building energy, support indoor environmental quality and reduce building mechanical system life cycle costs for owners.

Our adherence to the principles of the Triple Bottom Line – people, planet, profit-- informs everything we do, from R&D to constantly looking for ways to reduce our own carbon footprint.
