Benjamin Moore Paints that Qualify for LEED v4 credit
Benjamin Moore is proud to offer a wide range of LEED-compliant paints and coatings.
LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a green building certification system developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) in March 2000. LEED uses a suite of rating systems to recognize projects that implement strategies for better environmental and health performance.
The LEED Green Building Rating System® provides minimum performance standards for various sustainable building elements, including paint. LEED 2009 gives Green Building credit for paints that meet certain Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) limits.
LEED® v4 is the latest version of LEED; it went into effect in 2013, and the USGBC allowed a choice between LEED 2009 and the more demanding LEED v4 until the end of October 2016. As of November 1st 2016, LEED v4 is the only standard recognized for new buildings.
Paints earn LEED v4 Low-Emitting Materials credit for being emission certified in addition to meeting CARB SCM 2007 VOC limits.
The following is the list of Benjamin Moore Products that qualify for LEED v4 Low Emitting Materials credit.
Additional LEED v4 documents including HPDs (Health Product Declarations), Declare labels, and Cradle to cradle certificates are available for various products as applicable; please contact Benjamin Moore Customer Service at 866-708-9180 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
