The green revolution is increasing the demand for sustainable, green and energy efficient design. PennBarry understands the importance of these initiatives, which is why we are members of the U.S. Green Building Council and an Energy Star Service & Product Provider Partner.
Fans in the HVAC system are key components of most mechanical systems, and major users of energy. PennBarry is committed to help the industry improve the efficiency of fans and reduce their energy consumption in buildings to meet the industry’s goal of net-zero by 2030.
As a fan manufacturer, it is our responsibility to provide energy savings solutions to the market. Capitalizing on our knowledge of the HVAC industry, LEAN manufacturing, and product value analysis, PennBarry will continue to lead the industry in improving the efficiency of fan systems in new and existing buildings.
The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) is a 501 c3 non-profit organization committed to a prosperous and sustainable future for our nation through cost-efficient and energy-saving green buildings. With a community comprising 78 local affiliates, more than 20,000 member companies and organizations, and more than 100,000 LEED Accredited Professionals, USGBC is the driving force of an industry that is projected to soar to $60 billion by 2010. The USGBC leads an unlikely diverse constituency of builders and environmentalists, corporations and nonprofit organizations, elected officials and concerned citizens, and teachers and students.
As a member company, PennBarry will be able to serve on a LEED or USGBC committee and help shape the future of LEED and green building. Company members also vote for the Board of Directors and participate in ballots of the LEED Rating System.
PennBarry is committed to green building and the environment on every level of the company. With one LEED AP and 3 LEED Green Associates on staff and several more preparing for the exam, PennBarry has a thorough understanding of the LEED rating system and green buildings. At PennBarry, we are part of a corporate community that cares for our environment. All PennBarry employees have taken personal and corporate responsibility for our individual and collective levels of energy consumption and waste production.
