Itron achieves LEED certification
Itron's corporate headquarters, 2111 N. Molter Road in Liberty Lake, has been granted LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification by the U.S. Green Building Council at the gold level.
The roughly 200,000-square-foot building is the first Itron facility to qualify for LEED certification by incorporating key principles of sustainability in existing building operations and maintenance. These principles included water conservation, waste management and energy efficiency; nontoxic materials and recycled/reused materials; balance between environmental and economic considerations; and proximity to public transportation.
