Responsibility to the environment, society, and employees is a core value of our parent company, Merck KGaA Darmstadt Germany. The Performance Materials U.S. headquarters was designed and built to achieve LEED® Gold certification. As an internationally recognized mark of excellence, LEED provides building owners and operators with a framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions.
As you explore this site, you will learn how we have applied LEED principals to our facility. We have applied all six of the identified areas within LEED’s scope: Sustainability, Energy & Atmosphere, Water Efficiency, Indoor Environmental Quality, Innovation and Green Living in our headquarters.
