PPG White Paper Focuses on Green Building

Friday, November 6, 2009

Comment | More

PPG Industries Inc. announced the publication of a white paper detailing how the company’s paint, glass, and coatings products can contribute to “green” certification of building projects.

The eight-page document primarily references Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) criteria published by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), while also showing how environmental claims for PPG’s paint, glass, and coatings can apply to Green Globes, BREEAM, CASBEE, Green Star, and other international green-building certification criteria, the company said.

The white paper is divided into three sections—one each for paint, glass, and coatings—that explain how individual products can contribute to LEED credits for building projects in the categories of Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ), Materials and Resources (MR), Energy and Atmosphere (EA), and Innovation in Design (ID).

James J. Bogdan, PPG manager, green building initiatives, construction market team, said the white paper is part of a comprehensive program to support architects in green-building efforts. “The principles and practices of green building are constantly evolving,” Bogdan said. “This white paper coincides with the release of the latest LEED 3.0 criteria, but the guidelines apply to any architects, engineers, or owners who want to make their buildings healthier, safer, more comfortable, and more energy-efficient.”

PPG maintains an in-house green-certification support network that provides architects and general contractors with documentation assistance for LEED and other green-building programs. Online resources include downloadable volatile organic compound (VOC) compliance guidelines, sample spreadsheets for VOC budget calculations, solar-reflectance ratings for metal roof coatings, links to green-product directories, and contact information for PPG-certified fabricators, applicators, manufacturers, and retail outlets to encourage regional sourcing of building products.

The white paper can be downloaded from the website located at www.ppgideascapes.com.
