There are many green guideline programs in the building industry and all share the goal of building a more efficient, healthier building environment for those who live or work there. The USGBC (U.S. Green Building Council) has created national guidelines (the LEED Program) from the collective experience of leading personnel in the green building movement.
While products alone do not provide points, Hardie® siding products may contribute to the following LEED New Construction points: MR5 (MR4 for Homes) Recycled Content and MR5 (MR4 for Homes) Regional Materials.
James Hardie interior products may contribute to the LEED New Construction points for Low-Emitting Materials as the HardieBacker® product line is certified GREENGUARD Gold.
