Eaton Corp., Cleveland, recently announced its membership in the Milwaukee-based Alliance for Sustainable Built Environments, a group of industry leaders who practice and are recognized for leadership in sustainability. Founded in 2003, the mission of the Alliance’s international corporate members is to educate the marketplace and top management on the benefits of reducing the overall impact facilities have on the natural environment and on building occupants.

“The Alliance invited Eaton to join based on the company’s commitment to protect and improve the environment not only through corporate sustainability initiatives to reduce company emissions, energy consumption, and waste production, but to also encourage customers and suppliers to do the same,” says Craig Zurawski, executive director, Alliance for Sustainable Built Environments. “Eaton’s Electrical Group offers energy-efficient and environmentally sound electrical solutions to help customers qualify for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) credits.”
