Mapei products can contribute to important credits, thanks to their Environmental Project Declarations (EPDs) and products with very low emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), guaranteeing the end user’s comfort and well-being.
A LEED calculator is available on the Mapei website allowing users to select the Mapei products involved in a given project and receive a LEED credits declaration letter. LEED declarations can be downloaded from the Mapei website. These declarations list all the environmental characteristics and traits enabling a certain product selected for a building project to contribute towards the building’s final certification.
This tool is very often used by both architects and designers: over the last year, there have been over 1500 downloads.
LEED is not just global: GBC Italia (the Italian Green Building Council) published maps of Milan indicating all LEED-certified buildings (and building projects that will be LEED-certified) during its “Green Cities: the New Normal” conference held at Milan Polytechnic on 21st March 2019.
The maps were also sponsored by Mapei, one of the first companies to become a member of the association when it was founded in 2008. Mapei is also a member of the Board of Trustees of GBC Italia.
Mapei’s has actually been associated with the Green Building Council since 2001, when Mapei became a member of the local American branch, USGBC. Mapei is now a member of local associations of the Green Building Council in all the countries it operates in, supporting the design and execution criteria promoted by the international GBC network: healthy, energy-efficient buildings with limited impact on the environment.
As part of the Green Building Council Italia’s projects, Italy’s leading sustainable initiatives were awarded special commendations on Friday, 22nd March, in Milan. A prize-giving ceremony that focused on the work and boom in the Green Building movement on various fronts: Mapei was rewarded for its Leadership in Business and Sustainability.
