Understanding Paint, Coatings, and Sealants in LEEDv4.1 – Sherwin-Williams
Presented by Sherwin-Williams – March 1, 2023 – 1:00pm ET/12:00pm CT– AIA 1 LU/HSW
Since the launch of the first LEED® certification program in 1998, the U.S. Green Building Council has led the drive for more sustainable and environmentally responsible buildings. With the recent introduction of LEED® v4.1*, the U.S. Green Building Council placed an increased emphasis on transparency of product-level decisions. The intent of these requirements is to better understand the lifecycle impact of building materials on the well-being of those who work, learn, and live in LEED® -certified buildings. This challenge means that design teams must figure out how to navigate different types of claims and certifications on a myriad of products for each project. In this course, you will learn how to simplify the process of specifying low-emitting materials that help to maximize credits for paint, coatings, and sealants in three credit areas within LEED® v4.1 for new construction.
PROGRAM LEARNING OBJECTIVES
At the end of this course, participants should be able to:
- 1. Establish how design teams can make informed decisions and to help achieve sustainability goals and/or LEED® certification when specifying paints and coatings throughout a project, in order to help improve indoor air quality for the end-users.
2. Discuss the importance of specifying 3rd party certified low-emitting paint and coating products, and how they contribute to the well-being of the end-user.
3. Explain how 3rd party validations for paint and coatings bring transparency to Material Ingredient Reporting, which means that owners can be certain that they are using products that will support the best interests of the end-users throughout the lifecycle of the product.
4. Learn about coating technologies that provide proactive solutions to address indoor air quality challenges, such as mold and mildew and disease-causing bacteria on painted surfaces as well as off-gassing of formaldehyde from other building materials.
