LEED® ISOTEC

Isotec AND THE LEED® V4 RATING SYSTEM

LEED® - Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design - is a certification system for buildings that is created on a voluntary basis and is applied in over 140 countries worldwide. The LEED standard was born in America by U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), a non-profit association founded in 1993, which currently has more than 20,000 members and whose aim is to promote and develop a global approach to sustainability, acknowledging virtuous performance in key areas of health human and environmental.

LEED® is a voluntary and consensus-based system for the design, construction and management of sustainable buildings and high performance territorial areas that is developing more and more internationally; it can be used on any type of building and promotes an integrated design system that covers the entire building.

The LEED® rating system certifies the building, does not certify the individual products or building components that can help meet the requirements of the protocol and consequently achieve the score for the building.

The protocol is organized in areas / chapters that contain the prerequisites and credits. The prerequisites are mandatory and do not give points, while the credits can be chosen or not by the design team but they are the ones that give the score, which must be achieved to obtain the certification level defined as a certification objective.

ISOTEC, ISOTEC XL and ISOTEC XL PLUS can contribute to achieve the LEED® v.4 certification score in the following credits and prerequisites:

  • EA p2 - Minimum Energy Performance
  • EAc2 - Optimize Energy Performance
  • MRc3 – Building product Disclosure and Optimization – Sourcing of Raw Material
  • MRc4 – Building product Disclosure and Optimization – Material Ingredient
  • MRc5 – Construction and Demolition Waste Management
  • EQc1 - Enhanced Indoor Air Quality Strategies
  • EQc5 - Thermal Comfort
  • EQc9 - Acoustic Performance
