LEED® Certification

  

LEED® Certification - Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design - An international rating and standard system designed by the US Green Building Council to promote the development of buildings based on sustainability and energy efficiency criteria.

LEED® provides a sustainable rating method for buildings, assessing the impact of the building based on 5 main categories: 
 

  • 1.-sustainable sites
  • 2.- water efficiency
  • 3.- energy efficiency, renewable energies and emissions released to the atmosphere
  • 4.- materials and natural resources
  • 5.- indoor environmental quality
  • 6.- innovation in design
  • 7.- regional priority



LEED® rating systems, designed by the USGBC, establish voluntary reference standards for sustainable building at a worldwide level. Buildings are awarded points based on their sustainability 

How can we help you to obtain LEED credits? 

FINSA materials are manufactured from harvested wood and rapidly renewable and recyclable resources, which will help you to obtain LEEDTM credits for your project in different areas: 
 

  • § Recycled content
  • § Regional materials
  • § Rapidly renewable materials
  • § Certified wood
  • § Low-emitting materials



You will find standardised sheets with descriptions of our materials with these criteria on the GBCe  (materiales.gbce.es/revestimientos/)  Materials Platform for the Certification process. 

This platform was created as a tool for obtaining information about building materials and products, particularly with regard to their compliance with the mandatory requirements of environmental certification systems such as LEED v3 and v4, thus making it easier for professionals and technicians to carry out environmental assessments with the aforementioned standards: 

USGBC started by recognising GBCe as the sole Spanish representative of the Leed International Round Table From then on, GBCe was established as the main organisation for providing all the information required about the American building certification tool in Spain.
