Buildings have direct and indirect impacts on the environment. During the process of construction, use, renovation, alteration and demolition, buildings consume energy, water, and raw materials. They also generate waste and release greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere, contributing to climate change. These factors have led to the creation of green building standards, certifications, and labelling systems intending to reduce the footprint of buildings on the natural environment.
Many Green Building rating systems such as LEED, BREEAM, or WELL have been launched in the last decades to improve the environmental performance of buildings through sustainable designs.
At Saint-Gobain Glass, we offer a wide range of solutions to help you reach your certification goals!
