Dulux Trade has launched a requirements guide and extended its range of Environmental Product Declarations, to help specifiers achieve improved sustainability.
The guide specifiers how to comply with the paints and coatings requirements in the Well Building Standard – the most recent Environmental Assessment Method. The standard promotes the concept that the wellbeing of individuals should be central to the design, development and maintenance of buildings.
The Well Building Standard requires the use of low VOC products and intelligent use of colour. Dulux Trade has therefore produced best practice guidelines that can be used as a reference point for specifiers looking to incorporate the Well Building Standard into their next project. It includes advice in relation to the following sections:
‘Air 01 – Part 1’ Q2 2017 ‘Air 04 – Part 1’ Q2 2017
‘Air 11 – Part 1’ Q2 2017 ‘Air 25 – Part 1’ Q2 2017
‘Air 25 – Part 4’ Q2 2017
‘Light 59 – Part 1’ Q2 2017 ‘Light 64 –Part 3’ Q2 2017
Dulux Trade has therefore renewed and extended its Environmental Product Declaration offering, with over 20 available for a range of products. The EDP documents provide extensive product information and are available to access on the Dulux Trade website.
EDPs examine the environmental impact of 1m2 of applied paint over its full life cycle. They outline the manufacture of the product and the environmental impact throughout every stage of its life cycle.
Duncan Lochhead, Commercial Sustainability Manager at Dulux Trade explained: “We aim to help specifiers design smarter, more sustainable spaces. These tools not only provide useful information on improving sustainability onsite, but can also ensure specifiers comply with building standards.”
