Taking the LEED®
Nordic Naturals is committed to reducing our environmental footprint in our everyday office practices, and is a certified Monterey Bay Area Green Business for conserving natural resources and minimising waste and pollution. Some of our practices include using 100% biodegradable packaging materials, eco-friendly cleaning products, and printing all literature on post-consumer and recycled paper, using soy-based inks.
Nordic Naturals’ new green U.S. headquarters is underway! In accordance with the LEED® Green Building Rating System™, our new facility is designed for a GOLD rating and further carries out our commitment to healthy people and a healthy planet.
The U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED® Rating System promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognising performance in five key areas of human and environmental health:
• Sustainable site development
• Water savings
• Energy efficiency
• Materials selection
• Indoor environmental quality
