Did you know 2% of building cost could contribute up to 27% of its LEED certification points?

Paints and coatings are one of the most inexpensive building costs on a construction or refurbishment project. In fact, on average only 2% of the costs associated are attributed to these products.

Jotun’s paints and coatings are a cost effective and aesthetic method of protecting any structure, while being conscious of the long-term effects to the environment, in both application and upkeep. These considerations are evident when analysing the make-up of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification.

Jotun's Green Building Solutions

The company’s Green Building Solutions (GBS) products can help achieve different levels of LEED certification. For obtaining the ‘certified’ level of accreditation, Jotun can contribute up to 27% of the required points. Even at the highest level of certification, the ‘platinum’ rating which is over 80 points, Jotun can contribute up to 14% of the points accumulated. This is impressive, considering that paints and coatings represent such a small proportion of new building development costs.

Global green building construction continues to increase, and Jotun’s Green Building Solutions are the market’s easiest way to design, specify, protect and make buildings more beautiful.

The Green Building Solutions comply to demands in LEED – and can help your project fulfil the green building standards of the future.
