Built "green" for a sustainable future
Endress+Hauser's additions to U.S. headquarters exceed LEED requirements
Endress+Hauser was looking for a practical and sustainable approach toward building efforts. One that would be beneficial both long-term and short-term, and one that would conserve energy. Being LEED-certified was the answer. LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, and Endress+Hauser’s newest buildings on the Greenwood campus surpass the requirements and specifications for this certification.
Benefits of LEED certification
Less energy and water used and/or wasted
Reduced greenhouse gas emissions
A LEED-certified expansion
Our campus expansion included three manufacturing buildings, Automation, Flowtec and Wetzer, and our Customer Center. All of these buildings are LEED-certified. An energy-saving 1.2 million dollar geothermal system, the only heating and cooling system for Automation and Flowtec, was included in the project.
Built for sustainability
All building materials sourced from within 500-mile radius
87% of all construction waste recycled
Low-VOC carpeting, furniture and building materials
Roofs are white TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin)
Wall systems are double-insulated
Glass is low "E" thermal
Occupancy sensors control energy-efficient lighting
Skylights that amplify manufacturing-space lighting
Energy efficiency of all new buildings exceeds the Indiana Energy Code

Caring about the future
From our experience in the field of process engineering, we know that you can only control that which you measure. This is one of the reasons why we began submitting a Group sustainability report last year. We have to know where we stand, so that we can fulfill our responsibility as a company.
