LEED® CERTIFICATION

RESINDEK® PANELS CAN CONTRIBUTE TO LEED® CREDITS

Established by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) green building rating system is the world's most widely used and recognized. It signifies a facility has been constructed with materials that reduce its carbon footprint and improve its indoor environmental quality.

Qualifying for the USGBC's LEED certification can be a complex process. To meet its extremely detailed standards and guidelines, mathematical calculations and detailed documentation are required. The final rating of a building is determined by a weighted sum of credits achieved through five major areas: sustainable sites, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources, and indoor environmental quality.

Using Cornerstone's ResinDek® engineered wood flooring panels in the construction of mezzanines and elevated work platforms can contribute to a variety of credits across two categories—materials and resources and indoor environmental quality—as shown in the table below.
