ASSA ABLOY Unlocks Extra Points for Green Builders

ASSA ABLOY Door Security Solutions Canada introduced its LEED® qualified suite of door security solutions at the first national summit of the Canadian Green Building Council.

LEED, short for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design is a green building rating system that provides a suite of standards for responsible and sustainable construction. Buildings become LEED certified based on a points system and all materials and systems used in its construction contribute to the total points. Point values take into consideration: recycled content, low emitting materials and local manufacturing.

“ASSA ABLOY is proud to be the only door security solutions manufacturer to participate in the debut Canada Green Building Council Summit in Toronto,” said Terry Fish, AHC, Director of Architectural Development, ASSA ABLOY Door Security Solutions Canada. It reinforces our company’s global commitment to help all building sectors improve energy and environmental performance.” In addition to LEED-friendly products, ASSA ABLOY has on-staff specification writers and representatives knowledgeable in the LEED point system available to assist architects garner points that can contribute to a building’s LEED certification.

ASSA ABLOY is ready to participate in the LEED Canada Green Building Rating System because of its historical and enduring company philosophy of environmental stewardship. Moreover, ASSA ABLOY’s involvement in the CaGBC Summit continues the strong relationship the company has with architects and end users, especially those involved in sustainable building standards.
