Jotun Green Building Solutions

Company News, EMEA
Jotun has launched an online green building guide to facilitate specification of paints and coatings that are eligible for inclusion in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Version 4 building certification programmes (the coating systems component typically accounts for between 14 and 27 per cent of the total points required under LEED).


Green Building Solutions (GBS) provides a single global source for customers looking for an easy way to increase points for green building standards, including LEED and BREEAM. 

GBS also provides paints and coatings across a full range of building needs – with specification support for the planning stage and global availability for construction stage – including architectural powder coatings; anti-carbonation coatings for concrete; decorative paints; floor coatings; intumescent coatings for cellulosic fire protection and protective coatings. 

These different products work together to make it simple to attain LEED certification, aided by the vast number of EPDs that Jotun provides for its Green Building Solutions products.  

Commenting on the launch, Henriette Eggen, Jotun’s global marketing manager infrastructure, said: “Paints and coatings represent such a small percentage of a building’s cost – yet the impact they can have on achieving rating points is outstanding. We are delighted to launch our Green Building Solutions and the online Green Building Guide to customers in this growing green building industry.

“We have worked hard to ensure we are able to provide the most efficient type of EPDs for our customers worldwide: third-party verified Product-specific Type III EPDs. This ensures our customers get the most points value from their paints and coatings possible, all from one supplier.  

“We are proud to be a trusted partner and source of paints and coatings in the global construction industry, whether it be residential or public, industrial or civic buildings. Our Green Building Solutions help to ensure a successful green building throughout its life cycle.”
