Poligon products can assist your project with LEED certification.

What is LEED?

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a national standard developed by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) to certify sustainable buildings. LEED buildings can help save energy, conserve resources, protect occupant health, and improve owners’ bottom lines. LEED utilizes a system of points awarded in multiple environmental categories for achieving specific levels of sustainable performance.

LEED Category

Location and Transportation (LT) - LT Credit: Bicycle Facilities

Potential Credits: 1

Provide short-term and long-term bicycle storage for visitors and regular building occupants. Storage amount and proximity to adjacent building varies depending on building usage.

Sustainable Sites (SS) - SS Credit: Heat Island Reduction

Potential Credits: 1-2

Option 1: Using roofing materials that have an SRI equal to or greater than the following:

Slope Initial SRI* 3-year aged SRI*
Low-sloped roof ≤ 2:12 82 64
Steep-sloped roof > 2:12 39 32


Option 2: Place a minimum of 75% of parking spaces under cover with a roof having a 3-year aged SRI of at least 321.

Materials and Resources (MR) - MR Credit: Building Product Disclosure and Optimization – Sourcing of Raw Materials

Potential Credits: 1

Products with recycled content of at least 20%, by cost, of the total value of permanently installed building products in the project. Recycled content is the sum of the post-consumer recycled content plus one-half the preconsumer recycled content, based on weight**.

Indoor Environmental Quality (EQ) – EQ Prerequisite: Environmental Tobacco Smoke Control

Create designated smoking areas located at least 25 feet from all entries, outdoor air intakes, and operable windows.

* Certain Poligon roof colors meet this requirement. (Contact customer service or your local sales representative for more information.)
