Phoenix, AZ – USF Contract, the commercial division of USFloors, was awarded the Green Exhibitor Award for the Partner Level at the 2009 Greenbuild International Conference and Expo held recently in Phoenix, AZ. The Green Exhibitor Awards are based on points accumulated by using the Green Exhibition Scorecard provided by Greenbuild and the USGBC.
Mark Brunelle, National Sales Manager for USF Contract, was excited with the recognition the award provided. “We really made an effort to prepare our exhibit with the scorecard in mind. When the Greenbuild Performance Committee audited our booth on Wednesday morning, we actually earned additional points and were in the running for most points obtained in the entire Expo.”
Brunelle continued, “We are in the business of making and supplying the building industry with sustainable, environmentally friendly flooring options, but we strive to minimize our impact on the environment in all aspects of our business. This award is further evidence of our commitment to the environment.” (You can hear more from Mark Brunelle and USF Contract’s Greenbuild experience in an interview with Kemp Harr from floordaily.net.
