LEED Credits

What is LEED and How Can Mohawk Help?

LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, has changed the way we think about how buildings and communities are planned, constructed, maintained and operated. This building certification program is administered by the U.S. Green Building Council. LEED's purpose is to create buildings that are resource efficient, using less energy and water to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

LEED v4 is the newest version of LEED; it is designed to better focus on the materials used in a project, specifically looking at their effects on human health and the environment, as well as their overall performance. This is where Mohawk fits in. Through several certification processes, Mohawk's products are being awarded with EPDs, MHAs, and HPDs to help our customers reach their LEED certification goals. Review the tables below for full details.

EPD - Environmental Product Declaration

An EPD is a third-party verified and registered document that discloses the environmental impact of products during their lifecycle. In order for a product to achieve an EPD, it must first undergo a lifecycle assessment performed using established product category rules (PCRs). These rules are used as a baseline to analyze the amount of energy consumed during the production of the product, from raw material acquisition to disposal.



HPD - Health Product Declaration

An HPD can be third-party or self-certified. In order for a product to achieve an HPD, it must undergo a material health assessment (MHA), which discloses a product's "ingredients" - and each of the ingredients' relationship to human and environmental health. The HPD lists every chemical used in the product, identifying all components down to 0.1% by mass. Once an HPD is published, it is valid for three years.
