The “Green” Marketplace
McGraw-Hill Study Confirms
Green is Still Growing





Share of green home construction increased from 2% in 2005
to 17% in 2011
Green construction’s market share is expected to grow as
much as 38% by 2016, representing $87 billion to $114 billion
in construction activity — a fivefold increase over 2011.
LEED® -certified buildings accounted for over 20% of new nonresidential floor area built in 2011. LEED®-registered floor
area in the U.S. is now about 35%
34% of remodelers expect to be doing mostly green work by
2016, a 150% increase over 2011 activity levels.
3 regions higher than average growth: the West Coast, the
northern region of the Midwest; and New England.

Product Sustainability

What is Green?




Addresses environmental impact of manufacture,
construction and use
Green product specifications and green building
guidelines give insights
Moving to “sustainable” to bring in the social and
economic benefits
Who Cares?



Specifiers, Architects, Builders, Contractors,
Manufacturers, Consumers
Regulatory bodies – EPA, Fed, State & Local Government,
FTC
Those applying green building guidelines or supplier
sustainability standards
Product Sustainability

What is Greenest?




Common question
We have rated Owens Corning products against
competing brand and materials
But that may not be the right question!
Why do We Care?


Can mean the difference in being specified or chosen
Provides information on future design to meet current
and future market requirements
Product / Project
Specifications
Common Green Spec Criteria
Recycled/Biobased Content in Product
 Volatile Organic Compound Emissions
 Human/Environmental Health Criteria
 Recyclability of Product after Use
 Renewable Resources in Product
 Regional Products (500 miles)
Recycled/Bio-based Content in Product
 Ozone Depleting, Carcinogens or other
Red Listed Chemicals Used

these program
requirements
The Product Life Cycle
Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is a compilation and evaluation of the
inputs, outputs and potential environmental impacts of a product system
through out its life cycle
Raw material and energy consumption
Raw
Material
Fabrication Steps
Use
Emissions to air, water and soil
End of Life
Typical Impacts Examined
Energy consumed (renewable & non-renewable)
Global warming (greenhouse gases)
Acidification (soil & ocean)
Smog
Ozone depletion
Eutrophication (excess nutrients to water bodies)
Eco-toxicology & human toxicology
Depletion of minerals and fossil fuels

Types of LCAs
Cradle-to-Grave
Cradle-to-Cradle
Cradle-to-Gate

• Screening LCA:
Product Development
How is a LCA Used?
• Project work
 Optimize environmental product performance
 Optimize environmental plant performance
• Organizational Use
 Optimize environmental company performance
• Marketing
 Product environmental claims
 Competitive comparisons
 Transparency with OC Customers and suppliers
Revised 7/21/2015
LCA, PCR and EPD
Your new BFF
Meet the EPD…
(a.k.a. Environmental Product Declaration)
A 3rd party verified,
internationally recognized,
single transparent disclosure
of a product’s impacts
throughout its life cycle.
It is like a green “nutrition”
label for a product
EPD’s provide quantified
environmental data based
on an LCA that consumers
and purchasers can use to
identify environmental risks.
Drivers for EPD’s in Today’s Marketplace
“Green” Criteria of highest importance:
75% Product specifications by manufacturer
70% Proof compliance of “green” claims
68% 3rd Party Validated documentation
65% Product Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)
64% 3rd Party Certification
LEED® Pilot Credit 6.1
•Gives Credit to LEED project teams that attempt to specify certified
products and products with accompanying EPDs
LEED® 2012 V4
•Draft version includes credits for specifying products that have 3rd
Party Certified EPDs
