A Greener Freedom Steel
Freedom Steel as a company decided many years ago that we do have a responsibility to the planet. What we decide to do now, no matter how small, will make a difference in the future.
When we decided that Freedom Steel would become a paperless company a lot of people said it could not be done. So, we built our own software so that we could eliminate over 90% of our paper usage. This along with many other "Green Implementations" allows us to operate in a way that we will not only be the leader in the steel building market but also in leaving behind the least amount of carbon footprint possible.
We are also a proud member of the US GREEN BUILDING COUNCIL (USGBC). www.usgbc.org
