SUSTAINABILITY & LEEDV4
LEEDV4 is a voluntary whole-building rating system that uses required prerequisites and optional credits to incentivize sustainable design and construction. One way to achieve optional credits is to purchase and install greener building products. With full ingredient disclosure and our product take-back program, Keyless.Co locks contribute toward two major new credits in LEEDV4.
INGREDIENT TRANSPARENCY: CHECK OUT OUR HPDS
LEEDV4 is different from past versions because it now rewards project teams for choosing products with material transparency— meaning they have something like a nutrition label that lists all their ingredients. To get one point, you simply need to gather 20 of these labels for your projects.
Our publicly available, LEED-compliant Health Product Declarations (HPDs) disclose all Keyless1 and Keyless360 product contents down to 100 parts per million—beyond what LEED requires. These HPDs can help you achieve Option 1 of the new credit called Building Product Disclosure and Optimization – Material Ingredients when you install any Keyless lock. You can find our HPDs online by clicking here.
PRODUCT TAKE-BACK: HOW TO PARTICIPATE IN OUR PROGRAM
LEED also encourages the purchase of products from companies that have a take-back program so that reusable and recyclable materials don’t end up in the landfill. To claim a point under Building Product Disclosure and Optimization – Sourcing of Raw Materials, you’ll need 25% of your products to meet one of a variety of requirements, including take-back programs like ours.
When locks come back to us—whether it’s after use or because of our performance warranty—we refurbish them if possible and recycle them if not. This extended producer responsibility (EPR) program means that all Keyless products contribute toward credits in LEEDV4 under both the building design and construction and the operations and maintenance rating systems. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or +1 972-331-2770 to return Keyless.Co, LLC. products through our EPR program.
