LEED AND BREEAM
LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is the most widely used green building rating system in the world. Available for virtually all building project types, from new construction to interior fit-outs and operation & maintenance, LEED provides a framework that project teams can apply to create healthy, highly efficient, and cost-saving green buildings.
FloorScore® is the most recognized indoor air quality (IAQ) certification standard for hard surface flooring materials, adhesives, and underlayments in the U.S. It qualifies for many green building schemes including LEED v4 and BREEAM – an environmental standard that rates the sustainability of buildings in the UK.
Kährs products are FloorScore® certified, which benefits LEED building projects. Our hardwood floors can contribute with several points in LEED 2009 and LEED V4 projects. Many of Kährs oak floors can also be produced as FSC® Mix or PEFC™, which means that they can contribute with points to LEED and/or BREEAM projects. Kährs holds license FSC® C019122.
