Our Sustainability Approach

At Clean Line, we take our commitment to bettering America’s energy future seriously. Environmental responsibility is demonstrated in the following ways:

  • Encourage employees to walk or bike to the office when possible with in-house locker room, showers and a bike storage area
  • Promote the use of public transportation when possible. Clean Line does not pay for or subsidize parking costs for its employees. Instead, we provide Houston public transit (METRO) cards to promote the use of public transportation.
  • Provide access to recycling for aluminum, paper, plastic, batteries, and electronics
  • Work with office suppliers that offer a toner recycling program and also have a strong commitment to sustainability
  • Use recycled paper for printed materials as much as possible
  • Encourage the use of reusable water bottles, coffee cups and silverware
  • Work diligently to limit the use of disposable kitchen items

Clean Line used green building principles when designing its office space, which is LEED Gold certified by the US Green Building Council. In addition, the Clean Line office space is located in a building which itself is LEED Gold Certified.

We incorporated green building practices into our office design in several ways, for instance:

  • Selected a location in the heart of Houston’s public transportation network
  • Used recycled and pre-owned furniture
  • Incorporated high efficiency light bulbs and lighting controls
  • Adopted an open floor layout that maximizes our use of daylight, increases efficiency of air circulation and improves the environmental quality for employees and visitors (And encourages teamwork!)
  • Selected paint and bright orange carpet that emit very low levels of volatile organic compounds and other air contaminants
  • Purchased renewable energy credits for 100% of the power needs

LEED Gold Certification Awards

    • About LEED: LEED, which stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), is an internationally recognized green building rating system that provides a measurable framework for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings.  LEED provides third-party verification that a building was designed and built using strategies aimed at improving performance across a variety of metrics, like energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts.
