Sustainable Facilities – New Facilities

The design of Carter Machinery’s new facilities include sustainable features that enable the facilities to be considered for certification under LEED® (U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standards. The decision to pursue LEED® certification lies with the Executive Management team at Carter Machinery, Corporate EHS and Corporate Facilities Management.

Sustainable Facilities – Existing Facilities

Carter Machinery supports and promotes actions that reduce energy use, increase energy efficiency, and  minimize adverse environmental impacts. Carter Machinery intends to apply LEED®-type standards as a framework for its existing facilities where practical. The decision to implement LEED® standards lies with the Executive Management team at Carter Machinery, in cooperation with Corporate EHS and Corporate Facilities Management.
