Environmental Initiatives

Our commitment to serving our clients and the environment has led us to be active in a number of energy and environmental organizations, associations and programs. We bring our passion for environmental stewardship into each new project and educate our customers to the benefits of adopting and maintaining an energy and environmental sensitivity.We invite our customers to draw upon our strong associations with key environmental groups and learn from our experience and expertise.

2030 Challenge
PCD Engineering is an adopter of the 2030 Challenge. The 2030 Challenge asks the global architecture and building community to adopt targets of energy consumption at 50% of the regional standards now, increasing every five years until 2030 with carbon-neutral designs. These targets may be accomplished by implementing innovative sustainable design strategies, generating on-site renewable power and/or purchasing (20% maximum) renewable energy and/or certified renewable energy credits.

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency – Energy Star®

PCD Engineering has cemented a strong partnership with the Environmental Protection Agency over the years, specifically with the EPA’s ENERGY STAR® program. ENERGY STAR® was introduced by the US Environmental Protection Agency in 1992 as a voluntary labeling program designed to identify and promote energy-efficient products, in order to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. ENERGY STAR has since expanded to cover new homes, most of the buildings sector, residential heating and cooling equipment, major appliances, office equipment, lighting, consumer electronics.

PCD Engineering Services is a proud service provider for the ENERGY STAR program and has received EPA’s “Gold Level Certificate of Recognition” and “Most Active Service Provider” for our efforts.

US Green Building Council / Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design
PCD Engineering Services is partner of the USGBC.  Our president is a member of the Colorado Chapter Board of Directors, we are LEED™ accredited design professionals and are active in LEED™ registered projects.
The U.S. Green Building Council is the nation’s foremost coalition of leaders from across the building industry working to promote buildings that are environmentally responsible, profitable and healthy places to live and work. The U.S. Green Building Council was formed in 1993. USGBC began developing the LEED™ (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) rating system in 1995 to provide the market with a standardized definition of “green” design, to prevent exaggerated or misleading claims of energy and environmental efficiency, and to promote whole-systems building design. LEED™ is a tool for market transformation. It is a voluntary framework for informed, high-performance design that is gaining momentum throughout the nation since twelve projects were first recognized as LEED™ Certified Pilot Projects in March, 2000.
