“At Green Element Solutions, environmental standards are extremely important,” says Maurico Muris, the company’s President. In seeking a green certification that matched their own corporate mission—to work in harmony with the world in order to preserve and execute green practices-- Green Element Solutions’ team researched numerous organizations before finding the GBB program.
“With GBB, we saw leadership and great customer support,” says Muris. “The GBB team has a clear focus and a mission to guide our company in achieving our green goals.”
Muris says that Green Element Solutions’ green goals include identifying and implementing better manufacturing processes and construction methods. The company’s products, which are created by recycling existing materials, go a long way towards achieving that objective.
Green Element Solutions’ products do not use wood, which is better for the environment and reduces the problem of mold and rot. The very nature of the design of ICFs eliminates the need for insulated products that may emit harmful chemicals, and saves on heating and cooling energy. In addition, the company’s products are fire retardant which conserves the integrity of a structure, and soundproof, which eliminates noise pollution.
“We use existent materials to make our products, which saves energy and raw materials and creates high-quality, efficient and sustainable construction supplies that improve building practices and processes,” says Muris.
The added benefit to Green Element Solutions’ manufacturing processes is the improvement to the company’s bottom line through the cost reduction in energy and materials. The company is currently in the process of integrating a system where it will use natural rain water during manufacturing to reduce water consumption as well.
“At Green Element Solutions we give our customers an efficient solution for their construction needs while using eco-friendly materials,” says Muris
