The LEED rating system was developed by the U.S. Green Building Council to provide a national benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance sustainable buildings. In order for a building to become LEED certified, it must meet certain prerequisites and achieve specified performance levels to qualify for rating points. All of our vendors are members of the U.S. Green Building Council and support the LEED program. As a devoted, private company, Best Supply is set on offering products that not only suit the needs of contractors but also the needs of our environment. With a solid commitment to staying environmentally responsible and respectful, Best Supply offers an array of environmental friendly, building products. By choice, we are followers of the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED rating system.
To prove our commitment, below are some of the products we sell in compliance with LEED requirements. Click the specified vendor logo to read more about how they sustain 'green' building materials.
CertainTeed Acoustical Ceiling Tiles: Made from mineral wool, starch, water and binders including recycled newspaper.

National Gypsum Drywall: The drywall we distribute from National Gympsum is made of byproduct calcium sulfate (AKA gypsum). The original material is sent through a process to remove sulfur dioxide (toxic gas) and once it’s eliminated, gypsum is created. THEN — to your building benefit — drywall is made.
Owens Corning Insulation: The insulation we distribute from Owens Corning is made at minimum of 20% recycled waste.
ClarkDietrich Steel Framing: As steel is recyclable, ClarkDietrich makes certain to always recycle 100% of steel waste in its cold-formed process. ClarkDietrich says, “Every day at every plant.”
