Established in the United States in 1993 by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC), LEED is now the most widely used building sustainability certification standard in the world. Consider any field that involves the design and management of new or redeveloped commercial and residential buildings or neighborhoods.
Alubel has implemented the mapping of its products, according to the international standard LEED V4.1 BD + C, in order to highlight the characteristics of processes and products. This action was taken to identify how they can specifically contribute to the sustainability objectives of construction investments and to develop a specific credit matrix that can help meet the green building certification scheme.
The Ministerial Decree of 11 October 2017 on Minimum Environmental Criteria (C.A.M. Construction) sets out the rules to be followed in terms of environmental sustainability for the award of services and design of works for the new construction, renovation and maintenance of public buildings.
The decree collects a series of criteria that buildings and building components must comply with in view of environmental sustainability and sustainable consumption of resources.
Upon specific request, it is possible to ask Alubel for products that meet the following criteria:
- 2.2.6 Reduction of the impact on the microclimate of atmospheric pollution: we are able to provide you with the specific reflectance values of the various color ranges, depending on the metal used, validated by an accredited laboratory EElab - Enzo Ferrari UNIMORE Engineering Department
- 126.96.36.199 Emission of materials: the VOC EMISSION values have been validated by an accredited laboratory
- 188.8.131.52 Disassembly
- 184.108.40.206 Thermal and acoustic insulation: on specific request, it is possible to supply products with an insulating core that contain a percentage of recycled material greater than 1%
The Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is a document that describes the environmental impact related to the production of a specific product quantity or service: for example energy and raw material consumption, waste generation, atmospheric emissions and discharges into water bodies.
The Declaration prepared with reference to an LCA (Life Cycle Assessment), which defines the consumption of resources (materials, water, energy) and the impact on surrounding environment in the various stages of the product life cycle of metal corrugated sheets and sidings.
