See below how Fire resistant & High security glass by Vetrotech can contribute to LEED criteria: Building product disclosure and optimization - environmental product declarations
Vetrotech shares Saint-Gobain’s mission to provide products that meet the highest levels of performance and sustainability standards. This is why we have published an Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) for KERALITE and CONTRAFLAM, verified by an independent party and compliant with international standards. These declarations allow 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.
Read the detailed requirement for Environmental Product Declarations
Sharing the ambitions of the Saint-Gobain Group regarding Environmental, Health & Safety topics, Vetrotech developed an EPD for its CONTRAFLAM product range, which is compliant with ISO 14025 and EN15804 verified and published through the program operator, UL Environment. This provides relevant, verified, measurable and comparable information about the environmental impact from our fire resistant glass products. Other EPDs will be available soon for the entire product portfolio.
