SOPREMA Takes the « Lead » for Sustainable Material Transparency

Published by SOPREMA Experts

Montréal, October 23, 2017

On Thursday, October 19th, SOPREMA issued the transparent declarations of 141 of its products to meet the new requirements of certification programs such as LEED v4. LEED certified professionals and stakeholders involved in sustainable development issues were at the Centre Phi in Montréal to discuss the importance of manufacturers of building products designing those products to make buildings more sustainable.

As part of their transparent approach, SOPREMA published four environmental product declarations (EPD) covering more than a hundred roofing membrane products. The company also published five eco-declarations validated by the independent third party Vertima, which will soon be followed by three others currently being validated. Ten Health Product Declarations (HPD) have also been published. Among these, the HPD for SOPRA-ISO was selected as part of a third-party validation pilot project with the Health Product Declaration Collaborative, which is a first among Canadian manufacturers for this certification.

To date, 288 LEED® certified projects in Canada have been carried out with SOPREMA materials.
