These certifications will expedite submittals for quick, seamless credit documentation and approval.

  • Definitions:

    • Building Product Disclosure and Optimization - Material Ingredients Credits

      • Intent: To reward project teams for selecting products for which the chemical ingredients in the product are inventoried using an accepted methodology and for selecting products verified to minimize the use and generation of harmful substances.

      • Requirements:

        • Option 1. Material Ingredient Reporting (1 point) Use permanently installed products from manufacturers that use a Manufacturer Inventory to demonstrate the chemical inventory of the product to at least 0.1% (1000 ppm).

          • The manufacturer has published complete content inventory for the product following these guidelines:

            • A publicly available inventory of all ingredients identified by name and Chemical Abstract Service Registration Number (CASRN)

            • Materials defined as trade secret or intellectual property may withhold the name and/or CASRN but must disclose role, amount, GreenScreen List Translator or Benchmark scores, and associated hazards.

        • Option 2. Material Ingredient Optimization (1 point) Use products that document their material ingredient optimization using GreenScreen List Translator or GreenScreen v1.2 Benchmark for at least 25%, by cost, of the total value of permanently installed products in the project.

          • Products that have fully inventoried chemical ingredients to 100 ppm that have no List Translator 1, List Translator P1 or Benchmark 1 hazards:

            • If any ingredients are assessed with the GreenScreen List Translator, value these products at 100% of cost.

            • If all ingredients are have undergone a full GreenScreen Assessment, value these products at 150% of cost.
