AFI has taken an active leadership role in education and participation in the LEED Program (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) that was developed by the U.S. Green Building Council to provide a framework for implementing practical and measurable green building solutions. Compared to other traditional materials the total life-cycle assessment of fiberglass contributes to its viability as a green building product. When consideration is taken for the energy consumed in production, installation and environmental sustainability, fiberglass products generate a much smaller impact than other traditional materials and can be used in ways that are less energy or carbon intensive. The LEED program uses strategies aimed at improving performance across environmentally important metrics, such as energy savings, CO2 emissions reduction, and the careful and responsible management of resources. Certification recognizes a sensitivity to the building's impact on the world. Architectural Fiberglass, Inc. can help achieve that goal by providing a product shown to be environmentally and economically friendly.
