PPG adds web content for glass meeting CRADLE TO CRADLE CERTIFIED program requirements

PPG (NYSE:PPG) has posted new content at www.ppgideascapes.com, including a downloadable information guide, about its architectural glass that meets requirements for the CRADLE TO CRADLE CERTIFIED™ Products Program.

The resources detail how specifying PPG glass products can help architects earn credit for their projects through the LEED® (LEADERSHIP IN ENERGY AND ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN®) green building certification system, and they explain the requirements PPG and its glass products must meet to earn the certification.

Cradle to Cradle Certified products were written by the U.S. GREEN BUILDING COUNCIL® into the latest LEED v4 standard, offering two new avenues for project teams looking to earn credit through the LEED green building program by using PPG glass products.

Both paths, detailed online and in the downloadable guide, are available through “Materials & Sources, Credit 4: Building Product Disclosure and Optimization-Material Ingredients.” The first is for Material Ingredient Reporting (Option 1); the second is for Product Manufacturer Supply Chain Optimization (Option 3).

In addition to meeting requirements of the Cradle to Cradle Certified program at the Bronze level, advanced architectural glass by PPG can help buildings earn certification through the LEED green building program because it transmits daylight and blocks solar heat to create healthy living environments and reduce reliance on artificial lighting and air conditioning.

The Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute, a nonprofit organization, administers the publicly available Cradle to Cradle Certified Product Standard. The standard guides designers and manufacturers through a continual improvement process that looks at products through five quality categories: material health, material reutilization, renewable energy and carbon management, water stewardship, and social fairness.

PPG architectural glass products meet requirements of the overall Cradle to Cradle Certified program at the Bronze level and are Material Health certified at the Gold level, which is the highest level awarded to products in the Material Health category.

In 2008, PPG became the first U.S. glass manufacturer to have products recognized by the Cradle to Cradle Certified Products Program, and today the company offers more architectural glass products that meet program requirements than does any other company.
