USGBC LEED Credit Areas
What is LEED®?
LEED is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings. LEED gives building owners and operators the tools they need to have an immediate and measurable impact on their buildings’ performance. LEED promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, indoor environmental quality, and innovation and design process.

How do products contribute to LEED?

The LEED point system is about "contribution"; no single product can add "points", but single products contribute to meeting overall percentage criteria as defined by LEED.

Different versions of the rating system are available for specific project types:
  • LEED for New Construction: New construction and major renovations (the most commonly applied-for LEED certification)
  • LEED for Commercial Interiors: Commercial interior fitouts by tenants
  • LEED for Core and Shell: Core-and-shell projects (total building minus tenant fitouts)
  • LEED for Homes: Homes
  • LEED for Schools: Recognizes the unique nature of the design and construction of K-12 schools
  • LEED for Retail: Consists of two rating systems. One is based on New Construction and Major Renovations version 2.2. The other track is based on LEED for Commercial Interiors version 2.0.

  • How can Maxxon products contribute to LEED?
    Sample credit areas can be found below. The exact credit areas a project will qualify for is dependent on the type of project and the Maxxon product(s) used.

    GREENGUARD Certification

    What is GREENGUARD® and how can I be assured of Maxxon's eligibilty for GREENGUARD Certification?

    The mission of GREENGUARD Environmental Institute (GEI) is to improve public health and quality of life through programs that improve indoor air.

     

    It has been shown, and certified by the independent, third-party organization GREENGUARD Environmental Institute that Maxxon's products do not emit excessive levels of chemicals, including VOCs, formaldehyde, total aldehydes and phthalates. Maxxon's products continue to maintain GREENGUARD and GREENGUARD Children & Schools Certification, and certification of that fact is available on www.greenguard.org, including useful information related to chemical emissions and what it means to be GREENGUARD Certified.

     

    What is the difference between VOC Content and VOC Emissions?

     

    VOC content is calculated by the physical presence of specific volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in a wet product formulation. This is generally applicable to adhesives and other wet products, like paints and coating. This is a specific list of chemicals that react with sunlight to form ground level ozone. VOC emissions, however, are calculated from the finished product, and evaluate all chemicals that are being emitted from the product itself, in its installed and cured format.

     

    Certification Levels:
    GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified®: Product certification program for low emitting interior building materials, furnishings, and finish systems.
    GREENGUARD for Children & SchoolsSM: Product certification program for low emitting interior building materials, furnishings, and finish systems used in educational (daycare and K-12) environments.
