LEED Opportunities

The LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System™ is a voluntary, consensus-based national standard for developing high performance, sustainable buildings. Members of the U.S. Green Building Council representing all segments of the building industry developed LEED and continue to contribute to its evolution.

At VT Industries, we are constantly adapting our manufacturing techniques to ensure environmental responsibility. VT doors have been tested with the GREENGUARD™ Environmental Institute (GEI), and are GREENGUARD Air Quality Certified® and GREENGUARD Children & SchoolsSM Certified. VT is also FSC® Chain of Custody (COC) certified (FSC-C005590), offering several FSC certified products by request.

The above product attributes can assist you in achieving LEED credits. Under the LEED New Construction (NC) rating system, recycled content, regional materials, rapidly renewable materials, certified wood and low-emitting materials credits are all relevant to architectural wood doors.
