Created by the USGBC, the LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) program establishes a standard for measurement of green building and sustainability. LEED certification assesses the entire building project, and many Georgia-Pacific building products can contribute to certification points. The use of gypsum and wood panels in building supports sustainable construction.

Refer to the downloadable Sustainable Materials Data Sheets (SMDS) below to learn pertinent information about how these products may help a green building qualify for LEED® points in categories such as Materials and Resources, Environmental Quality, or Innovation in Design.
