LEED V4 is the latest version of Leadership in Environmental and Energy Design, an American protocol that enables buildings to be certified as eco-sustainable according to parameters and credits described in the most widely adopted green building criteria in the world.
Issued by the GBC US, it is mandatory for all LEED projects registered after October 2016.
Numerous changes have been made to the previous version: Mapei products play a part in obtaining important credits thanks to their EPD’s (type III environmental declarations) and their products with very low emission of VOC.
Launched in the UK in 1990, BREEAM (BRE Environmental Assessment Method) is a protocol for sustainable building practices adopted mainly in the United Kingdom and in Scandinavian countries with the version BREEAM NOR.
By adopting this protocol, thanks to their EDP’s and very low emission of VOC, Mapei products help towards obtaining relative credits.
