LEED Info

LEED Initiative

LEED provides building owners and operators a concise framework for identifying and implementing measurable green building design, construction, operations, and maintenance solutions. Lyon prides itself on being an organization that is environmentally responsible by using environmentally friendly materials in our products and having environmentally sound practices and procedures in the workplace. Lyon products are manufactured from steel that contains a conservatively overall estimated 53% recycled steel (36% post-consumer, 17% pre-consumer). We purchase steel from both integrated and mini mills throughout the United States. In addition, our packaging materials are made from either recycled or recyclable materials.

Lyon also participates in recycling programs with regard to our waste products generated during the purchase and consumption of raw materials and the manufacture of products in order to maintain our position as an environmentally friendly and responsible organization.

As an organization that takes pride in being sensitive to our environment, we continually work towards finding new ways to provide products to customers that are environmentally friendly and maintain procedures in the workplace that do the same.

Lyon is committed to developing products as well as programs that positively impact the environment. We are the clear cut leader in green initiatives with our goals to create healthier environments. We strive to lower operating costs, reduce emissions, as well as maintain an enviro-friendly product delivery system.

Our centrally located manufacturing facilities also stand within 500 miles of many metro areas for fuel-efficient deliveries. LEED provides building owners and operators a concise framework for identifying and implementing measurable green building design, construction, operations, and maintenance solutions. Lyon also set initiatives in place to reduce our environmental footprint. We’ve achieved the following LEED Accredited Points:
