Hydrotech has developed products, systems and alliances that reflect their commitment to environmental sustainability. Along with producing one of the industry's best performing membranes, Hydrotech has also introduced some of the industry's most sustainable waterproofing assemblies.

Monolithic Membrane 6125, the foundation for all their assemblies, helps generate LEED® points on projects around the country each and every day. Hydrotech assemblies feature recycled content in the membrane and reduced lifecycle cots due to project longevity (which also reduces its impact on landfills). In addition, the Ultimate Assembly® delivers energy savings through reflective pavers, while their Garden Roof® Assembly delivers storm water management capabilities.

S.I. Storey Lumber Company believes their practices are sound and environmentally friendly. Most of their employees live near where they work or have multi-generational ties to the area in which they operate. The company grew up here and still lives here. This is their neighborhood and they take pride in that. They take care of their surroundings and believe in the product they produce. One of the advantages of wood is that it is the best insulator of all structural building materials, with millions of tiny air cells trapped within its cellular structure providing a barrier against heat and cold. An inch of wood is 15 times as efficient an insulator as concrete, 400 times as efficient as steel, and 1,770 times as efficient as aluminum. So, homes and other buildings built with wood require far less energy to heat and cool, thus conserving fossil fuels and coal. Another benefit of using wood is that it is reusable, recyclable, and biodegradable.

As one of the leading online distributors of teak furniture in North America, Westminster Teak recognizes the influence it plays on the industry and the impact it has on the environment specifically in regard to forest conservation and management. Westminster Teak has made their company’s policy to source their teak wood from well managed, credibly certified forests. Their factory was the first to join Nusa Hijau, the Indonesian Chapter of the Global Forest Trade Network (GFTN), an initiative of WWF®(World Wildlife Fund) to eliminate illegal logging and improve the management of valuable and threatened forests. They purchase wood only from Perum Perhutani, the government-managed plantation that promotes biodiversity and the livelihoods of the people that depend on them. And, because it is the only source in their supply chain for wood base material, they have 100% transparency; they know exactly where all their lumber comes from for every component of their furniture; from the forest-floor to retail floor.
Zeager continues its good environmental practices by supplying a 100% recycled foam drainage product to the greenroof industry . Zeager's involvement started when they were approached by a leading greenroof designer - Roofscapes Inc. about their drainage product called Duradrain® which they had used as a drainage base for their various playground surfacing systems. Roofscapes incorporated this drainage product into their Roofrug® system as a drainage media and to promote root growth. Since then, there has been much excitement about this affordable system since it is excellent for retrofit situations requiring little or no structural enhancements.
