Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) provide verification of a product’s environmental impact throughout a building’s lifecycle.
Industry-wide (generic) EPDs
Product-specific Type III EPDs
The green building points value increases for each of the levels with the product-specific Type III EPDs, independently verified, non-biased reports, the most valuable. Green building standard revisions, such as LEED v4.1, makes product-specific Type III EPDs even more valuable.
Jotun has probably the most extensive list of product specific Type III EPDs – which are the most valuable in terms of earning green building points – in the industrial coatings market. We have third party verified our life cycle analysis data from cradle to gate as the minimum defined scope accepted by the major green building standards.
Not only that, Jotun has developed a tool that enables the global business to respond to and generate new EPDs based on customer requests, much faster than other providers.
Jotun’s 64 companies worldwide, with multiple locations in a region, may also count as different manufacturers, further meeting the criteria of sourcing from various manufacturers towards your project’s green building rating points.
In short, Jotun has worked hard to ensure its customers around the globe get the most points value from their paints and coatings possible – all from one supplier.
Jotun’s Green Building Solutions (GBS) represent a smart and efficient way to green building rating points when developing a building or undertaking a refurbishment in line with green building standards. Jotun products contribute to the earning of LEED points in a streamlined, easy and effective way through its GBS.
Green building certification and accreditation is an increasingly important and highly regarded aspect for architects, engineers and owners to consider for the construction and maintenance of properties.
Paints and coatings are one of the most inexpensive building costs on a construction or refurbishment project. In fact, on average only 2% of the costs associated are attributed to these products.
