Product Lens provides relevant information combined with third party credibility for increased product transparency
CLEVELAND (Apr 27, 2017) – Sherwin-Williams, the first paint manufacturer to be certified in the Product Lens™ program from UL, (Underwriters Laboratories), provides another opportunity to gain points toward U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) LEED® v4 green building program. The Product Lens report is an ingredient disclosure tool that provides hazard information across the entire lifecycle of a product and also considers risk and exposure, fulfilling industry demands for transparency. It is now one option toward the category of LEED v4’s building product disclosure and optimization – material ingredients.
The Product Lens program was designed specifically with LEED v4 in mind. Product Lens reports are third party certified by UL Environment, which means that the materials have been independently evaluated for transparency and disclosure. Sherwin-Williams ProMar 200 Zero VOC Interior Latex Paint is the first product to be certified by the program.
“Now that Product Lens is officially recognized by USGBC, we’re pleased to make it even easier for our customers to achieve LEED v4 certification,” said Steve Revnew, senior vice president of product innovation at Sherwin-Williams. “Meeting the demands for more transparency is important to us and achieving Product Lens reports for our products was a natural fit because of our shared dedication to providing credible information to architects, specifiers and other purchasers.”
