Deloitte Joins Bayer MaterialScience’s Expanding EcoCommercial Building Network
November 10, 2010

Professional services organization Deloitte is the latest member of Bayer MaterialScience LLC’s EcoCommercial Building (ECB) Network in North America.

“Deloitte brings to the network its commitment to sustainability and diverse quality services, such as energy and resources management and sustainability measurement, reporting, and consulting,” says Paul Platte, he ad of the EcoCommercial Building Program, North America, for Bayer MaterialScience. “With the addition of Deloitte, our network’s combined capabilities present our clients with a powerful portfolio of solutions to address the challenges and opportunities associated with balancing societal contributions to sustainable growth with excellent economic performance.”  
 
Deloitte’s values align with the integrated, sustainable building design that the ECB Network promotes. According to Chris Park, principal and sustainability and climate change leader of Deloitte Consulting LLP, Deloitte is looking forward to enhancing its offerings while collaborating with other ECB member companies.

Bayer MaterialScience LLC’s ECB NA program, launched April 26, 2010, advocates an integrated, collaborative approach to sustainable building design and construction. Network member organizations provide products aligned with seven building solution areas (Building Envelope/Insulation; Daylighting; Illumination; Indoor Environmental Quality; Sustainable Energy; Intelligent Building; and Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) that help to increase sustainability and reduce energy costs. The network’s members function independently to provide services for sustainable building projects, which may or may not involve Bayer MaterialScience products.

Members of the ECB Network include industrial adhesives and sealants manufacturer, Bostik, and window manufacturer Graham Architectural Products among others. Alliance organizations of the ECB Network include the Center for Building Performance and Diagnostics of Carnegie Mellon University; Bayer Technology Services; polyurethanes provider, BaySystems™; and Sheffield Plastics.
