Emerson recently earned two high-profile industry recognitions for environmental responsibility. 

(ST. LOUIS, MO.) Emerson, the global manufacturing and technology company that acquired ProTeam in September 2009, recently earned two high-profile industry recognitions for environmental responsibility. Emerson’s state-of-the-art Global Data Center on the St. Louis headquarters campus received LEED Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council and a 2009 Beyond Green High-Performance Building Award from the Sustainable Buildings Industry Council.

  The LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) rating system is the nation’s pre-eminent program for the design, construction and operation of high-performance green buildings. Emerson earned 40 out of a possible 51 points to receive LEED Gold certification. The Beyond Green honor recognizes initiatives that shape, inform and catalyze the high-performance building market, as well as the real-world application of high-performance design and construction practices.

  Meanwhile, all of ProTeam’s high-performance vacuums qualify for LEED credit under the U.S. Green Building Council’s program. Additionally, in 2010, seven ProTeam vacuums earned the Gold Seal of Approval/Green Label from the Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) for meeting the highest standards in carpet cleaning effectiveness and indoor air quality.

  “This Earth Day is a significant occasion for ProTeam,” says Matt Wood, ProTeam President and CEO. “For years we’ve been putting our efforts behind technology and real world applications that benefit the environment and the health of those who live in it. Now, we have a parent company with the same drive for innovation when it comes to environmental responsibility.”
