LEED – Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design

Tubelite Inc. is located in West-central Michigan, an area of great natural beauty including state and national forests, hundreds of small lakes and wetlands, and endless miles of shoreline and dunes along the largest bodies of fresh water in the world. Keeping these treasures in pristine condition is important to us, and Tubelite has joined with the United States Green Building Council (USGBC), and its Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) program towards that end. We encourage you to consider energy efficiency and sustainable design in all of your projects. Please visit the USGBC website to familiarize yourself with its goals and resources, and consider becoming a member if you have not already joined.
