More than 100,000 projects across 180 countries and territories are certified in the LEED system. In terms of the LEED criteria, paints and coatings can contribute up to 17% of the credits required for certification. These points may be accumulated across 3 categories.

Sustainable Sites

Sites are deemed sustainable if they minimise harm to microclimates and human and wildlife habitats by reducing heat islands. Jotun's paints and coatings can contribute up to 2 LEED points.

Indoor Environmental Quality

Low-emitting materials can have a positive impact on air quality, human health, productivity, and the environment. Jotun's paints and coatings can contribute up to 3 LEED points.

Materials and Resources

LEED encourages the use of products for which the environmental impact can be verified. You can earn 1 LEED point for documenting material ingredients, and 1 LEED point for Environmental Product Declaration. In total, Jotun's paints and coatings can contribute up to 2 LEED points.
