AirTest goes green with membership in key organizations

    DELTA, BC, Sept. 4 /CNW/ - AirTest Technologies (TSXV:AAT) is pleased to
announce that it has significantly increased its profile and contribution to
the Green Building movement by becoming participating members in three
important organizations that are driving practices and standards for
environmentally friendly and energy saving technology in all types of
    These organizations are The US Green Building Council (USGBC), The US EPA
Energy Star Program and the Collaborative For High Performance Schools (CHPS).
"These organizations are highly influential advocates, driving changes in
building codes and practices that will make sensor technologies as offered by
AirTest, a standard for green and environmentally friendly construction," said
George Graham President of AirTest Technologies Inc. He added, "Some AirTest
products, like our parking garage systems and carbon dioxide sensors, are
already recognized in these programs, but our hope is we can also introduce
other new AirTest product innovations that can contribute to more
energy-efficient buildings and improvement in the environmental condition. A
primary reason for our membership is to provide technical input and guidance
so that all buildings can benefit from the type of innovative "Green"
technologies that AirTest offers."

    About The US Green Building Council: The USGBC is a leading organization
in the US promoting sustainable and green buildings through it's LEED building
rating system for new and existing buildings. Many local jurisdictions offer
significant incentives like property tax rollbacks for LEED qualified
projects. AirTest products can contribute several LEED points towards higher
levels of LEED certification. Link:

    About the US EPA Energy Star Program: This highly popular program is
recognized by more than 60% of Americans as the national symbol for energy
efficiency. As a Service and Product Provider in the Energy Star Program
AirTest will be able to better network with other companies looking to provide
energy and environmental solutions to the commercial buildings market. Link:

    About the Collaborative For High Performance Schools: CHPS is dedicated
to working with school districts and school designers to create high
performance schools that help school districts achieve higher student
performance, retain quality teachers and staff, reduce operating cost,
increase average daily attendance (ADA), and reduce liability, while at the
same time reducing environmental impact and resource use. Given that thousands
of AirTest sensors have already been installed in schools throughout the
United States, this organization is a good fit for AirTest. Its membership
will enable AirTest to further introduce its energy saving and
environmentally-friendly technology to the large schools market. AirTest has
been invited to participate in the CHPS Greentools Conference to be held
September 11-12 in Sacramento, CA. Link:
