Nordson Corporation has achieved Silver LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification for its headquarters in Westlake, Ohio.

Environmentally friendly features include energy optimised lighting, HVAC and water systems, a partial green roof planted with native vegetation, a parking lot and landscape design that mitigates storm water generation, reflective white roofing materials that reduce heat island effects and regionally sourced and recycled construction materials.
“Beyond providing a payback on the investment made in the systems, the choice of high efficiency equipment and enhanced design is a tangible representation of Nordson’s dedication not only the environment, but also local communities,” said Ronald A. Cocco, president od Clark & Post Architects, which designed the building for Nordson.
