See below how Accoustic ceilings by Eurocoustic can contribute to LEED criteria: Building Product Disclosure and Optimization - Environmental Product Declarations.
To encourage the use of products and materials for which life-cycle information is available and that have environmentally, economically, and socially preferable life-cycle impacts. To reward project teams for selecting products from manufacturers who have verified improved environmental life-cycle impacts.
Option 1 “Measure”: the Environmental Product Declaration (1 point)
The project must use 20 different permanently installed products sourced from 5 different manufacturers that meet one of the following criteria:
- Products with a publicly available, critically reviewed life-cycle assessment (value ¼)
- Generic Environmental Product Declarations with a third party certification (value ½)
- Product specific Environmental Product Declarations with a third party certification (value 1)
Option 2 “Reduce”: multi-attribute optimization (1 point)
The project should use 50% (based on cost) of third party certified products that demonstrate impact reduction:
- Below the industry average in 3 of the 6 Life Cycle Assessment categories.
- Compared to the same product, over time.
Read the detailed requirement for Environmental Product Declarations
At Eurocoustic, we strongly believe that Life Cycle Analysis is the method the most reliable available to assess the environmental impacts of construction products. Thus, the resulting Environmental and Health Product Declaration (EHPD) allows us to communicate reliable information to the designers and construction companies based on accurate calculations. It is also a powerful tool for improving the environmental quality of our products. All our products have an EHPD that covers their entire life cycle and which are verified by an independent third party. These are established in accordance with the standards NF EN 15804+A1, NF EN 15804/CN and the series of standards ISO 14040 and are "cradle to grave" in order to cover the entire life cycle as requested in option 1 of this criterion.
