This UL white paper provides an overview of the various ways in which building product manufacturers can demonstrate compliance with green building certification programs and codes, such as LEED, International Green Construction Code (IgCC), California’s Green Building Standards Code, Green Globes, and the Living Building Challenge. The paper also discusses the various tools intended to aid in the evaluation and selection of environmentally preferable products, such as environmental product certifications, Lifecycle Assessments (LCAs) and Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs), as well as the specific functions of each. The white paper concludes with some thoughts about the value of both performance and transparency metrics in achieving environmental leadership.
