We work constantly with our global partners, clients, contractors and suppliers to improve efficiency, conserve natural resources and reduce waste and emissions.
As part of its commitment to being a good corporate citizen and community member, Johnson-Laux is committed to a strong set of environmental principles. It is our policy to minimize the environmental impact that may be associated with any of our activities; we work constantly with our global partners, clients, contractors and suppliers to improve efficiency, conserve natural resources and reduce waste and emissions.
Creating a sustainable and environmentally secure future calls for an active approach to preserving and improving the world around us. While we work for the creation of new technologies that will reduce the impact on the environment and reliance on non-renewable natural resources, our projects are designed to meet current environmental standards; several of these projects have been recognized by the USGBC as LEED Gold Certified.
We also strive to provide opportunities for those directly affected by existing projects to improve their way of life. Our employees are ahead of the curve with their involvement and drive our continued efforts to be the best possible stewards of the environment.
Three of our staff members have LEED accreditation and includes one of the less than 200 Certified Green Globes professionals in the State of Florida.
To date, Johnson-Laux has completed 3 New Construction projects that either have or are seeking LEED Certification:
