Penetron Products Awarded The Green Label
Heralding the green revolution, Penetron products have now been awarded the Green label by Singapore Environmental Council (SEC). The SEC is a member of the GEN (Global Ecolabelling Network - www.globalecolabelling.net), which has members in 27 countries and regions worldwide. With the acquired Green label, Penetron Products are now certified to be reducing overall VOC load on the project, thereby enabling the project to earn extra LEED points.
LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), an internationally acclaimed green building certification system was developed by the US Green Building Council (USGBC) in March 2000 in order to provide building owners and operators with a framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building designs, constructions, operations and maintenance solutions.
Through a suite of rating systems, LEED recognises projects which in their endeavour to implement strategies for better environmental and health performances add value to the environment. These rating systems are developed through an open, consensus-based process led by LEED committees comprising of diverse groups of volunteers representing a cross-section of the building and construction industry. Key elements of the process include a balanced and transparent committee structure, technical advisory groups that ensure scientific consistency and rigour, opportunities for stakeholder comments and reviews, member ballot of new rating systems, and fair and open appeals.
