O que são programas de rotulagem Green Building?
Construção sustentável é uma grande tendência global. Ao descobrirmos que os edifícios são responsáveis por 39% das emissões mundiais de CO2, sabemos que este é o caminho correto a se seguir. As certificações de edifícios são uma prova de que os edifícios foram projetados para reduzir sua emissão e aumentar o impacto positivo para as pessoas. Os mais conhecidos são LEED e BREEAM, uma vez que foram reconhecidos internacionalmente.
Como contribuímos para as certificações Green Building?
Durante o processo de certificação, o edifício é avaliado em várias categorias: eficiência energética, saúde e bem-estar etc.
Para algumas dessas categorias, os materiais de construção escolhidos podem afetar imensamente a pontuação do edifício. Na Saint-Gobain, fornecemos diversas soluções que contribuem para certificações Green Building
Descubra abaixo como podemos contribuir para as certificações LEED e BREEAM.
