Energy Efficiency & Sustainability

We are committed to exercising corporate environmental stewardship because it aligns with our Core Values of Integrity, Continuous Improvement and Sustainability. Every day, we strive to do our part to protect our natural resources by recycling, reusing materials where appropriate, and reducing pollution emissions.

In 2021, we completed installation of a 1.792 MW solar array at our stone manufacturing facility, comprised of 4,480 solar panels. It is expected to reduce electrical power consumption by 60% and to prevent emission of 1,472 tons of CO2 annually.

Sustainable product development is important to ProVia—in addition to the solar array, our stone manufacturing plant employs rainwater holding tanks and uses recycled water on the production line, our residential metal shake and slate roofs are manufactured from domestically sourced recycled steel, and our siding products contribute to LEED and ICC 700 National Green Building standards.

In addition:

  • We use a nonflammable liquid blowing agent that improves energy efficiency and lowers global warming potential.
  • Our Pollution Prevention Program dramatically reduces solvent usage.
  • To save fuel, our trucks use the TriPac Idle Reduction and Temperature Management System.
  • We use paperless online ordering and internal paperless fax systems to reduce paper usage.
  • We recycle paper, metals, and glass.

LEED Certification

LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a non-profit/non-government agency developed by USGBC (U.S. Green Building Council) in 1998 to encourage sustainable building practices in several different markets.

The LEED green building certification program is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction, and operation of green buildings. It is a voluntary certification program that can be applied to any building type and any building life-cycle phase. It promotes the whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in key categories. For a building to become LEED certified, it must meet specific prerequisites and achieve specified performance levels to qualify for rating points.

All rating categories can achieve 1 of 4 levels of certification. ProVia door products can contribute to LEED points in 3 credit categories, helping your project satisfy all prerequisites to be certified. The three categories ProVia doors contribute to are as follows:

Energy and Atmosphere (EA)—This credit category encourages a variety of energy strategies such as reducing carbon impact and energy consumption.

Material and Resources (MR)—This credit category encourages sustainably grown, harvested, produced and transported products and materials. Reuse and recycle existing building materials. Use more recycled content.

Regional Priority (RP)—This credit category encourages use of regional products to reduce carbon impact of fossil fuels in transportation and to support local economies.

We are here to help you build LEED-certified projects which are designed to:
  • Lower operating costs and increase asset value.
  • Reduce waste sent to landfills.
  • Conserve energy and water.
  • Be healthier and safer for occupants.
  • Reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Qualify for tax rebates, zoning allowances and other incentives in hundreds of cities.
  • Demonstrate an owner’s commitment to environmental stewardship and social responsibility.
