Committed to green construction

CMC is a supporter of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) initiative.

As a metals recycler, steel producer and steel fabricator, Commercial Metals Company (CMC) demonstrates our commitment to sustainability and high-performance green buildings with the transparent reporting of our environmental impacts.

We are an active member and supporter of the efforts of the U.S. Green Building Council in the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) initiative.

All of CMC's steel mills utilize state-of-the-art Electric Arc Furnace Technology to make steel. This technology uses pre- and post-consumer recycled scrap as the primary raw material for the steelmaking process and comprises on average a 98.0% recycled content. With the significantly high percentage of recycled materials, all of CMC's products play a major role in "Green Construction" and are a positive contributor to the LEED® rating system.

With our national fabrication footprint and having completed a manufacturer specific USGBC EPD, CMC is able to supply your project with fabricated rebar that is capable of contributing a full positive LEED® credit under LEED® 2009 or LEED® v4.

On October 31, 2016, USGBC officially transitioned to LEED® v4 from LEED® 2009. The sunset for LEED® 2009 is set for June 31, 2019. To assist during the sunset period, the below links will direct you to CMC's LEED® data for the current LEED® v4 as well as LEED® 2009 for those projects that are qualifying under the legacy rating system. Let us show you how we are helping LEED the way to sustainable steelmaking.
