Why do we Certify?
Green Building Initiatives and Certification Systems, such as LEED, assess the sustainable performance of building materials and the performance of the whole building. Such initiatives are of growing importance and are consequently influencing the market demand for construction products. Sika is actively participating in these initiatives and programs.
Sika has developed Manufacturer Inventories to support our customers’ material ingredient chemical transparency initiatives and meet the requirements of LEED MR Credit: Building Disclosure and Optimization – Material Ingredients – Option 1. This Manufacturer Inventory has been third-party verified by GreenCircle Certified, LLC to follow the LEED v4 standard requirements and contributes to 1.5 credits under LEED v4.1.
A third-party audit by GreenCircle Certified, LLC has been completed, which verifies Sika’s product and chemical management system. This assessment included a review of the completeness and accuracy of the hazard classification, assessment and communication within the provisions of North American countries’ regulatory requirements.
