Recently, sign shops have been increasingly interested in the Certified Green aspect of Precision Board Plus HDU. Essentially what we have been hearing is that more and more of their customers are wanting to know what exactly their “green options” are when choosing their sign. We see this as an indicator of the change coming to the sign industry.
With the US economy also starting to improve, a rise in new building construction is on the horizon. State and Federal incentives ensure that building planners have good reason to build an earth-friendly, LEED certified building, (See our previous blog to see why LEED is so important) and naturally, green signs will be the specified standard.
Our Green Certifications include:
Certified Carbon Footprint of 3:1 – For every one carbon that it takes to produce Precision Board Plus, 3 carbons are saved throughout its product life.
Certified Rapidly Renewable Resource Content of 23.9% – Roughly a quarter of each sheet of Precision Board Plus HDU is made up of a rapidly renewable resource.
With the way the industry is moving, green signage is fast becoming the standard and not the option. Simply put, providing a green substrate can help to reduce waste, reduce greenhouse gas, conserve energy and assist in meeting LEED requirements necessary for tax rebates and incentives for new buildings & homes.
