In order to understand the importance of LEED liners in environmental applications, it’s first necessary to know what LEED certification is and why it’s important.

What is LEED Certification?
LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, strives to change the way buildings and communities are planned, constructed, maintained and operated. LEED has become the most widely used third-party verification for green buildings. Projects earn LEED points across various areas of the project that address sustainability issues and based on the number achieved receive a LEED rating level: Certified, Silver, Gold and Platinum. LEED certification verifies that a project uses resources efficiently.
LEED Liners in Environmental Applications
LEED-certified liners can help a company earn LEED points on their project, which contributes to their overall rating. When designing projects for environmental applications, such as stormwater retention and algae harvesting support ponds, LEED liners can help your project achieved the desired level of LEED certification.
LEED liners have been specially designed and certified to improve and benefit our environment. When considering the environment, it’s important to use specialty geosynthetics that incorporate eco-friendly materials and manufacturing processes.
Many LEED liners are used to contain water, one of the world’s most precious natural resources. Water liners need to be made from environmentally friendly materials, especially when used for drinking water or to contain fish and plant life.
By manufacturing and using LEED liners, be it for environmental applications or otherwise, you’re choosing to take leadership in environmental design. By making ecologically responsible product choices and being aware of what’s in them and the effect they have on the environment, as well as human, health, you’re choosing to build a better future.
