See below how Ceilings by Gyproc can contribute to LEED V4.0 criteria: Low-Emitting materials
Glass is inherently a non-emitting source of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and is therefore an ideal eco-friendly building material.
To reduce concentrations of chemical contaminants that can damage air quality, human health, productivity, and the environment.
This credit covers volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions into indoor air and the VOC content of materials, as well as the testing methods by which indoor VOC emissions are determined. Different materials must meet different requirements to be considered compliant for this credit. The building interior and exterior are organized into seven categories, each with different threshold for compliance. Walls, ceilings and flooring are defined as building interior products; each layer of the assembly, including paints, coatings, adhesives, and sealants, must be evaluated for compliance. Insulation is tracked separately.

Glass is inherently a non-emitting source of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Note that any sealants used inside the weather barrier during installation must be accounted for in the Low-Emitting Materials credit for LEED certification.
