CPG members are committed to supplying healthy, resource efficient building materials for your Green building project. We continually seek innovative ways to reduce the environmental impacts of our products.
Products designated with the Spec-Green mark have enhanced environmental performance attributes. The first product in the Spec-Green™ portfolio is Spec-Brik® featuring 20% pre-consumer recycled content. The percentage of recycled content is calculated in accordance with LEED guidelines, including the alternative method for concrete products which calculates the percentage substitution of recycled cement substitutes for cement. Your CPG manufacturer will provide documentation indicating the method for calculating recycled content of the product upon request.
