SageGlass dynamic glass is a key contributor to “Life cycle impacts” criterion thanks to its verified Environmental Product Declaration and its commitment to sustainability.
SageGlass supports Saint-Gobain’s commitment to sustainable design by providing transparent documentation of its environmental impacts and publishing an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) verified by UL Environment.
To recognise and encourage the use of robust and appropriate life cycle assessment tools and consequently the specification of construction materials with a low environmental impact (including embodied carbon) over the full life cycle of the building.
Reductions in the building’s environmental life cycle impacts through assessment of the main building elements. The number of credits awarded is function of the calculator point achieved. In addition, where a range of at least five products specified at Design Stage and installed by Post-Construction Stage are covered by verified EPD, 1 credit awarded.

SageGlass shares Saint-Gobain’s mission to provide products that meet the highest levels of performance and sustainability standards. The solution has gone through a complete Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) process, whose results are available under an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) verified by an independent third party.
The results of the product LCA are indispensable in evaluating the whole building’s environmental footprint. They will in turn influence design choices towards more sustainable building materials.
