Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), LEED provides building owners and operators with a framework for identifying and implementing measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions.

LEED certification consists of a number of different rating systems that apply to many building types – commercial as well as residential – and measures how well a building performs across many sustainability metrics including: energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts.

Whether your project is new construction or renovation, energy efficient roofing, water run-off management and renewable energy are all important points to consider – and Sika Sarnafil makes it easy. A Sika Sarnafil roof can qualify for the attainment of 1 point under Sustainable Sites Credit 7.2 and contribute towards the attainment of up to 28 additional Points as described on the accompanying pages for LEED V 2.2 and LEED V 3.

With more than 45 years of experience providing long lasting, energy efficient roofing and waterproofing systems – combined with the knowledge gained from working on dozens of LEED certified buildings – Sika Sarnafil is uniquely qualified to assist you with your LEED project.
