LEED Version 3.0 Certification Program Information
The LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System® is a voluntary standard for developing environmentally responsible, low emission, high-performance, sustainable buildings. It was developed by the U.S. Green Building Council, under contract with the US Department of Energy.
Individual materials and products used in buildings are not certified. The version 3.0 certification process is for the entire construction project. The project earns “points” towards becoming certified. The categories where points can accumulate for ASI Storage Solutions products are as follows:
LEED V3.0 awards points for buildings that contain recycled, salvaged, reused, or refurbished materials, with points awarded as a function of the total building material weighs (10% = 1 point, 20% = 2 points). Credit is based on the sum of post-consumer recycled material + 1/2 of post-industrial recycled material. This contributes to Credits 4.1 & 4.2 of the "Materials & Resources" area.Read More
Rapidly Renewable Materials:
LEED V3.0 awards 1 point if 2.5% of the total value, based on cost, of all building materials used are derived from plants that are harvested within a ten-year cycle or shorter. This contributes to Credit 6.0 of the “Materials & Resources” area.
Certified Wood Materials:
LEED V3.0 awards 1 point if a minimum of 50% of wood based materials certified in accordance with Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Guidelines. This contributes to Credit 7.0 of the "Materials & Resources" area.Read More
Low Emitting Materials:
LEED V3 awards 1 point (Credits 4.1 and 4.2 of “Indoor Environmental Quality” area) if the VOC content is less than the current limits specified in SCAQMD Rule #1168 (adhesives) and Green Seal Standard GS-11 (paint), and 1 point (Credit EQ 4.4) if the composite wood and agri-fiber products contain no added urea-formaldehyde resins.
