STURTEVANT, Wis. – June 16, 2010 – Diversey, Inc. today announced that the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) has awarded the company LEED–EB (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design – Existing Building) for three of its facilities at its global headquarters campus.

Diversey’s global headquarters building and distribution facilities were certified at the LEED-EB Gold level and its East Campus building was recognized at the LEED-EB Silver level. These achievements make Diversey one of the first companies in the United States to earn LEED certifications for an entire global headquarters campus that serves a variety of purposes, including business operations, research and development, and warehousing and distribution.

“Diversey continues to pursue excellence in environmental management,” said Diversey Chairman S. Curtis Johnson. “The ongoing recognition of our facilities under the LEED program demonstrates how we’re building sustainability into all aspects of our operations.”

LEED is an internationally recognized green building certification system developed by the USGBC. The certification provides concise standards for the design, construction and operation of green buildings.

The LEED-EB certifications are part of a broader set of initiatives by Diversey to improve the environmental profile of its operations worldwide by reducing waste, energy and water consumption. Diversey has reported a 17.1 percent reduction in total energy consumption and a 16.1 percent reduction in waste disposed throughout its operations worldwide in 2009.

“Our campus in the Racine area is a living example of how sustainable facility management creates value in an enterprise,” added Diversey President and CEO Ed Lonergan. “Reducing water, waste and energy has made our facilities more profitable and is central to the solutions we offer our customers.”
