SUSTAINABLE BUILDING

LEED CERTIFICATION

mark leeds

Leed (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is an international system developed by the U.S. Green Building Council to promote sustainable and efficient construction. LEED is a voluntary certificate and can be applied to any building whether new or existing. LEED certifies buildings and not products.

Our products can help certify the sustainability of your project according to LEED by earning points in the following fields:

HEAT ISLAND EFFECT

Many of our products have a Solar Reflectance Index (SRI) greater than 29, helping to minimize the Heat Island Effect and therefore they are particularly suited to be fixed in the exterior.

LOW EMITTING MATERIALS

Our products do not emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs) due to the tiles being fired in very high temperatures helping to maintain a stable and healthy ambience in the interior.
