“As an American company concerned with environmental issues for a long time, we’re proud to join with others who share a commitment to promoting clean, sustainable construction in every way possible,” said Cal C. Mosack, Conbraco executive vice president. “The council’s promotion of socially responsible practices is something we at Conbraco totally support.”

The Green Building Council sponsors workshops, networking, certification and other programs. Its focus is to work with firms and agencies on all levels to introduce more sustainable practices in the design, construction and operation of buildings and communities. Among its accomplishments: the voluntary LEED® national rating system for new buildings.

Based in the Carolinas since 1955, Conbraco, through its Apollo® brand, produces of ball and butterfly valves, pressure-reducing valves, safety relief valves, backflow preventers, actuators, and other devices.
