See below how Electrochromic Glass by SageGlass can contribute to LEED V4.0 criteria: Building product disclosure and optimization - environmental product declarations
SageGlass shares Saint-Gobain’s mission to provide products that meet the highest levels of performance and sustainability standards. This is why an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) verified by an independent third party is available. It allows us to assess the environmental impact of our products in order to improve the ecological footprint and sustainable design at each stage of their life cycle.
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.

Sharing the ambitions of the Saint-Gobain Group regarding environmental, health and safety topics, SageGlass has gone through a Life Cycle Assessment process, the results of which are available under an Environmental Product Declaration compliant with international standards as required for LEED certification and verified by an independent third party.
