LEED Building Design & Construction (BD+C)

Materials & Resources credit – Building Product Disclosure & Optimization: Material Ingredients

You can earn one point under this credit if at least 20 different permanently installed products from at least five different manufacturers use a program to demonstrate the chemical inventory of the product to at least 0.1% (1000 ppm), including (but not limited to) a Health Product Declaration.

Indoor Environmental Quality credit – Low-Emitting Materials

Wood flooring and companion products can contribute to earning points under this credit if they emit low levels of formaldehyde and other VOCs. Unfinished solid wood flooring is automatically considered compliant. All other wood flooring products must be tested and determined compliant in accordance with California Department of Public Health (CDPH) Standard Method v1.1-2010. FloorScore certification means that the product has passed this test.

Materials & Resources credit – Building Product Disclosure & Optimization: Environmental Product Declarations

You can earn one point under this credit if at least 20 different permanently installed products from at least five different manufacturers have an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD). Industry-wide (generic) EPDs are valued as 1/2 of a product and product-specific EPDs are valued as a whole product for purposes of credit achievement calculation.

Materials & Resources credit – Building Product Disclosure & Optimization: Sourcing of Raw Materials

You can earn one point under this credit if at least 25%, by cost, or the total value of permanently installed products meet at least one of these criteria:

  •  Extended producer responsibility. Products purchased from a manufacturer (producer) that participates in an extended producer responsibility program or is directly responsible for extended producer responsibility.

  • Wood products. Wood products must be certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).

  • Materials reuse. Reuse includes salvaged, refurbished, or reused products.

  • Recycled content. Recycled content is the sum of post-consumer recycled content plus one-half the pre-consumer recycled content, based on cost.
