How Mastercraft Cabinets Contribute Towards LEED® Certification Points
Whether you’re striving to achieve LEED certification for a project or you’re simply interested in practicing good environmental principles, Mastercraft, as a responsible manufacturer, utilizes sustainable processes that may contribute towards LEED certification points.
Mastercraft may help your building or project acheive LEED certification by contributing towards credits in one key area: Materials and Resources.
Materials and Resources Credit 4 – Recycled Content
Mastercraft cabinets constructed from particle board are manufactured with at least 20% recycled material by weight and can contribute towards earning up to 2 certification points.
The Mastercraft cabinet products mentioned above may help you achieve LEED certification by contributing towards overall certification points, but the use of our cabinets alone will not qualify your project for LEED certification. Mastercraft cabinets are only a part of the building process and therefore need to be included in the project’s total calculations. The project’s total calculations will determine whether or not the project qualifies for LEED certification.
