Environmental Commitment

LEED Credits

What is LEED?

The purpose of Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is to construct buildings in an energy efficient manner and reduce the buildings’ energy consumption. As a result, these buildings can help conserve nonrenewable energy resources; decrease dependence on foreign oil; and lower greenhouse gas emissions.

Ramset LEED Credit MR 5.1

MR 5.1 was developed with the intent to increase demand for building materials and products that are extracted and manufactured within the region, thereby supporting the use of indigenous resources and reducing the environmental impact resulting from transportation.

Ramset’s pins, electrical accessories and anchors may meet the requirements for LEED MR 5.1 if your project falls within 500 miles of our manufacturing facilities.

How to calculate LEED MR 5.1

LEED MR Credit 5.1 is calculated on a 500 mile radius from/to distribution points. Use Google Maps to calculate the distance to your project from:
