Sustainable Building Standards & Solutions

Collaborating to create sustainable building solutions

Governments across the globe are setting targets for reducing carbon emissions and retrofitting existing buildings for better energy performance. The new benchmark of sustainable construction is creating a net zero energy building that produces all renewable energy on site and draws no more power from the grid than it gives back.

An integrated “whole-building” approach is now the model for commercial construction, and that holistic approach drives Dow as we collaborate with our customers to develop new commercial construction technologies that take buildings closer and closer to true net zero.

High performance building solutions from Dow delivers the advanced silicon technology innovation and product information necessary to help create a high-performance building: one that is energy-efficient, cost-effective, safe, flexible, aesthetically pleasing, and, most importantly, sustainable.

Meeting LEED requirements

One measure of a building’s sustainability is achieving LEED certification. To become LEED certified, you need to use products qualified to meet LEED v4 requirements.

Building and construction solutions from Dow meet LEED v4 Building Product Disclosure and Optimization—Material Ingredient reporting.:

Living building challenge

The Living Building Challenge (LBC) certification is a performance-based certification program created by the International Living Future Institute that requires buildings to be evaluated after one year of occupancy prior to certification.

The buildings are measured against criteria that include meeting:

  • 100% of energy demands with on-site renewable energy generation 
  • 100% of water needs by on-site rainwater collection 
  • Product transparency requirements and minimizing Red List materials

The Red List outlines those materials that are some of the most harmful-to-humans, with the goal being to avoid using these materials. The Red List is continually being reviewed and updated.
