Additionally, the new version of the LEED® rating system, LEED® v4 has dramatically revamped “Materials and Resources (MR)” credits. The credit named “Building product disclosure and optimization - material ingredients,” specifically rewards disclosure and optimization of product ingredients. This can be difficult for manufacturers to provide, especially when it comes to “proprietary” ingredients or tracking down ingredients from suppliers. PE INTERNATIONAL can help you determine what pathway is right for your organization and finalize credit compliance documentation; Health Product Declaration (HPD), Cradle to Cradle, Greenscreen or other, alternative pathways.
PE will quickly, efficiently and confidentially move your product through the disclosure documentation process. You supply the requested data and we’ll do the rest, including:
Confidential, streamlined collection and vetting of materials data
Can be combined with the EPD development process for efficiency
Assessment of materials data against applicable chemical screening lists
