PNC Branch On W. Seven Mile In Detroit LEED Certified: PNC’s Green Branch at 20300 W. Seven Mile Road in Detroit has achieved LEED certification for “green” building practices by the U.S. Green Building Council. PNC is the first bank in the United States to design and build LEED-certified bank branches in the U.S. It is the only bank permitted to use the term Green Branch based on the registered trademark granted by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office. The trademark is affirmation of PNC’s leadership in green building since 1998. To date, PNC has completed a total of 195 LEED-certified projects located in 16 states, in addition to Washington, D.C., and London, U.K. PNC has more newly constructed LEED-certified green buildings than any company in the world. More than 50 percent of materials used in PNC’s Green Branch locations are locally manufactured or made from recycled or green materials. Energy usage is reduced by nearly 35 percent or more compared to a traditional branch, and water usage is reduced by more than 30 percent. Window walls are three times more efficient than code and provide an open, airy space for employees and customers.
