Solar Reflectance Test & LEED Credits

Supporting healthy, efficient, and environmentally sustainable construction

The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System was developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) to provide a healthy, efficient, and environmentally sustainable construction framework.  Not only that but the solar reflectance test and LEED certification are globally recognized symbols of sustainability achievement.


To achieve LEED certification, a project earns points by adhering to prerequisites and credits that address carbon, energy, water, waste, transportation, materials, health, and environmental quality. Choose one of our qualified color options to help reduce our carbon footprint.  The material must have a Solar Reflectance Index (SRI) of 29 or more to qualify for LEED credit.

LEED System Goals
