May 27, 2010 - The GrassCutters join Canada Green Building Council
The GrassCutters are proud to be a member of the Canada Green Building Council. As a company that strives to be green in all of our endeavors, we felt it was only natural that we join like-minded organizations and professionals at the CaGBC. The CaGBC’s mission is to ‘lead and accelerate the transformation to high-performing, healthy green buildings, homes and communities throughout Canada’. A big part of their objectives is to administer the LEED Canada Initiative.
The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™ encourages and accelerates global adoption of sustainable green building and development practices through the creation and implementation of universally understood and accepted tools and performance criteria.
LEED is a third-party certification program and an internationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings. It provides building owners and operators the tools they need to have an immediate and measurable impact on their buildings’ performance.
LEED promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five key areas of human and environmental health:
- sustainable site development
- water efficiency
- energy efficiency
- materials selection
- indoor environmental quality
The GrassCutters would like to reach out to property owners and/or managers of LEED certified buildings that might be seeking a landscaping service that operates in a sustainable manner, like they do. All of our equipment is electric and uses only solar generated power captured and stored on our portable solar generator. For more information please contact us by email or by calling 416-364-7378.
