USGBC® LEED®​

The United States Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (USGBC® LEED®) is an international building certification program. USGBC® LEED® leverages the building industry as an economy of scale that can transform the manufacturing industry and push for healthier, environmentally friendly products and processes. Certification is based on achievement in: Integrative Process, Location and Transportation, Sustainable Sites, Water Efficiency, Energy and Atmosphere, Materials and Resources, Indoor Environmental Quality, Innovation, and Regional Priority.​ 

 

Many Elkay products contribute to Materials and Resources Credits. Elkay products may contribute to LEED v4.1 Building Product Disclosure and Optimization - Material Ingredients and LEED v4.1: Building Product Disclosure and Optimization - Sourcing of Raw Materials.

The Living Building Challenge​​

The International Living Future Institute's Living Building Challenge strives to create regenerative buildings that not only work to conserve resources but create a positive impact on the community and environment around it. The Living Building Challenge emphasizes seven performance areas called “petals”: place, water, energy, health & happiness, materials, equity, and beauty.​ ​ 

 

Select Elkay products may comply with the International Living Future Institute’s Living Building Challenge Materials Petal. Please contact sustainability@elkay.com for more information.​​ ​ ​

WELL Building Standard​

The International Well Institute’s WELL Building Standard focuses on the role of the built environment in health and wellbeing. WELL buildings seek to improve the comfort, happiness and health of the building occupants through thoughtful design, holistic thinking, and intentional material choices. Elkay products are designed, engineered and built with everyday life in mind. 

 

Many Elkay products have Health Product Declarations and are free of key hazardous substances. As such, they may contribute to WELL buildings. Please contact Sustainability@elkay.com for more information.
