Turner's Cincinnati Office one of 118 Turner Offices to Achieve Green Zone Status

June 22, 2012

For the second year in a row, Turner jobsites and local offices were asked to complete the Turner Green Office survey. The survey includes 13 prerequisites and 50 credits in five categories: Well-being and Environmental Quality, Recycling and Waste, Water Efficiency, Energy and Atmosphere, and Innovation and Design. 

To achieve designation as a Turner Green Zone, a project or office must achieve all 13 prerequisites and at least five additional credits. This year 280 sites completed the checklist and 118 were certified as Turner Green Zone offices, a 26% increase in certified offices from last year. An additional 122 projects achieved at least five credits but were not certified because they missed one or more prerequisites. Of these, 17 missed only one prerequisite and 15 missed two prerequisites. To recognize their achievement, Turner Green Zone projects will receive certificates and hard hat stickers.

Turner Green Zone projects reduce the environmental impact of our operations, minimize operating costs through energy and water efficiency and reduced material consumption, and provide a healthier and more productive workplace environment for Turner staff.

  • New Jersey 25
