K-C Enhances Relationship with U.S. Green Building Council

February 6, 2006

In an effort to help commercial buildings improve their indoor air quality, Kimberly-Clark Corporation—a member of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC)—offers a range of advanced air filter media, along with educational materials and tools designed to support the tenets of the USGBC’s LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Programs.  
    “Like the USGBC, K-C is committed to advancing buildings that are environmentally responsible, profitable and healthy places to work,” explained Dave Matela, CAFS, market manager, Kimberly-Clark Filtration Products.  “Proper use of our products may help achieve LEED credits and certainly help to improve IAQ.”
    When used as part of a proper air filtration system, Kimberly-Clark Filter Media can help buildings improve indoor air quality and reduce HVAC system energy consumption.
    In addition to its air filtration products, Kimberly-Clark offers IAQ educational materials, including a “Filtering Out Confusion” pamphlet series with tips on proper filter selection and maintenance, upgrading an air filtration system, reducing HVAC system energy costs, and improving the health and productivity of building tenants via the proper air filtration strategy.  The company also offers an energy efficiency calculator on its web site at, which allows buildings to analyze their HVAC operating costs and estimate the energy savings available with various air filtration technologies.
