We have an inherent responsibility to protect and preserve our most precious of resources – the world we share.

At PROTEX we believe that sustainability and environmental awareness is a process that starts from the ground up – literally.

We incorporate environmental responsibility into every aspect of our product design, development and distribution – to not only provide the most effective temporary job site products but also to help our customers further reduce their own environmental impact.

We believe that this balance is essential to sustain not only our own prosperity but also that of future generations.

In the United States, buildings account for:

  • 39 percent of total energy use
  • 12 percent of the total water consumption
  • 68 percent of total electricity consumption
  • 38 percent of the carbon dioxide emissions

Our built environment has a huge impact on our natural environment, human health and our economy. Green building maximizes both economic and environmental performance. Methods of green construction can be integrated into the building process at any stage, from design and construction, to renovation and deconstruction. However, the most significant environmental benefits are obtained when the design and construction team takes an integrated approach from the very beginning.
