WPC is fully-vested in a comprehensive "front office to front lines" building-green approach.
Sustainability is about meeting our present needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. With a growing US population of 328 million people, living on the same 3.8 million square miles we started with (in 1776) - as a society we are called to higher levels of personal and social responsibility toward our environment. WPC is invested in developing, implementing and accessing sustainability on our jobsites, around the office and in our automobiles in between. It's all part of The WPC Way.
KEEPING IT GREEN
On job sites, before construction even begins, we perform detailed building life cycle analysis. During construction our solid waste management programs go into action, recycling construction debris. We participate in many sustainable purchasing programs. Our Safety and Sustainability Manager leads efforts to keep us not only in compliance with environmental regulations, but to ensure we are at the forefront of new green building practices. At least 14 WPC team members have achieved a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification from the US Green Building Council, this makes nearly one third of all of our Project Managers and Superintendents.
The entire WPC vehicle fleet has been converted to higher efficiency, lower emissions standards.
The US Green Building Council has confirmed the WPC Corporate office as a Gold Certified LEED-EBOM - designated for focusing on both performance oriented sustainable strategies and outcomes
