BREEAM Approves SCS Indoor Air Quality Credits

BREEAM, the internationally recognized environmental assessment method and rating system for buildings, has approved certification under the SCS Indoor Advantage Gold program as eligible for credits under BREEAM’s indoor air quality requirements.

Indoor Advantage Gold certification is sought by manufacturers of office furniture and building materials, including paints and coatings, adhesives and sealants, insulation, wall coverings, furnishings and other interior products. In addition to BREEAM green building requirements, certification assures that products meet the emissions requirements of CA 01350 and the open, industry ANSI/BIFMA M7.1/X7.1 standards.

A list of Indoor Advantage Gold-certified products is available in the Certified Green Products Guide at scsglobalservices.com.

In addition to BREEAM, several US Green Building Council LEED systems cite Indoor Advantage Gold as an indicator of indoor air quality, including New Construction (NC), Commercial Interiors (CI), Core and Shell (CS), Healthcare (HC), and LEED for Homes. Indoor Advantage Gold is also included in important environmental rating systems such as the BIFMA level Furniture Sustainability Standard, Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS), and Green Guide for Health Care.

A March UL study predicts disruption in the building market over the next five to 10 years as owners, operators and investors of buildings increasingly recognize the potential of innovation indoor air quality to positively impact their bottom lines.
