MCAA Member Sloan received a United States Green Building Council (USGBC) LEED Silver plaque at a June 11 event. The plaque honors the company’s sustainability efforts at its Chicago Fulton Market District flagship showroom and office space. MCAA congratulates the entire Sloan team on this achievement.

Rhiannon Jacobson, USGBC managing director, presented the plaque to Parthiv Amin, Sloan’s chief sales and marketing officer. The venue is the world’s first commercial plumbing showroom to be both LEED and WELL certified. 

“It is an honor for Sloan’s showroom and office space to be recognized for its sustainable efforts with such a prestigious award,” said Paul Sambanis, Sloan’s vice president of sustainability. “Sustainability has been at the core of Sloan’s mission since the company was founded over a century ago, and this recognition is another reminder of why sustainable practices are so important. Thank you to everyone at Sloan for an unwavering commitment to sustainability and wellness, as well as the USGBC for visiting our showroom to bestow this honor upon us.”

The LEED Silver certification, awarded by the USGBC, verifies that the Sloan showroom has earned more than half of the basic LEED points recommended when developing an environmentally focused project. Sloan achieved its certification by reducing its parking footprint, purchasing renewable energy credits, maintaining material transparency, and implementing various other innovative approaches.

In addition to its LEED Silver certification, Sloan’s showroom has achieved WELL Gold certification, awarded by the International WELL Building Institute. This certification is presented to spaces that meet all WELL preconditions and achieve 40 percent or more of its optimization features, focusing on human health. Sloan’s showroom met or exceeded enhanced chemical thresholds, provided an acceptable thermal environment, achieved visual lighting designs, and ensured enhanced water quality through the use of Sloan products in the showroom’s restrooms.

Sloan’s Chicago Showroom, the company’s largest showroom in North America, highlights its touch-free, sustainable, and aesthetic product offerings across the entire restroom.
