See below how Ceilings by Gyproc can contribute to LEED V4.0 criteria: Building product disclosure and optimization – sourcing of raw materials
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 verified to have been extracted or sourced in a responsible manner.
Option 1. Raw material source and extraction reporting (1 point)
The project has to use at least 20 different permanently installed products from at least five different manufacturers that have publicly released a report from their raw material suppliers which include all details regarding their responsible extraction policy.
Third-party verified corporate sustainability reports (CSR) which include environmental impacts of extraction operations and activities associated with the manufacturer’s product and the product’s supply chain, are valued as one whole product for credit achievement calculation if they follow an acceptable framework, such as the GRI (Global Reporting Initiative).
Option 2. Leadership extraction practices (1 point)
LEED values products that meet the following extraction criteria: extended producer responsibility, bio-based materials, certified wood products, materials reuse and recycled content. As in LEED V3, Recycled content=postconsumer recycled content+1/2*preconsumer recycled content.
Products sourced (extracted, manufactured, purchased) within 160km of the project site are evaluated at 200% of their base contributing cost.

Every year, Saint-Gobain publishes its Corporate Social Responsibility Report, which is based on the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) framework. In this report, Saint-Gobain details its environmental policy, including supply chain subjects, and demonstrates how we prioritize the use of sustainable materials.
