Air filter manufacturer AAF International has become a member of the U. S. Green Building Council.

The USGBC is the organization responsible for developing the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design program.

“As a member of the Daikin Group, our corporate mission is to create and provide products and services that contribute to the conservation of the global environment by capitalizing on our vast experience and capabilities,” said Brian Thompson, vice president of global marketing. “In recognition of this goal, we are delighted to become a member of the USGBC and look forward to playing our part in fully supporting the LEED initiatives.”

Thompson also added more awareness of environmental issues has pushed AAF to create more energy efficiency products.

“In most recent years, as greater attention has focused on global warming and the effects of green house gases to our climate, we have continued the legacy in accelerating the development of air filter products with energy savings, superior performance yet reduced ownership costs in mind,” he said.
