Learn how Swegon contributes to sustainable building design
Swegon is committed to providing solutions for ventilating buildings for occupant health and comfort while contributing to green building certification programs that award points and credits for disclosing product ingredients. The Swegon Sustainable Building Solution includes products that contribute to the ventilation, comfort, sound and materials requirements of several programs. Our staff are active participants in these certifying bodies and are prepared to assist you with a selection of ventilation components that will help you meet program requirements.
Swegon is the first major HVAC supplier to offer an air handling unit with the Declare label, providing disclosure of the ingredients used in the manufacturing process.
Declare helps specifiers use healthy materials by showing where a product comes from what a product is made of where a product goes at the end of its life and if a product contains toxic ingredients. Declare is the only label that combines material transparency and the Red List. It distills complex chemical ingredient information into an easy-to-read label. Declare helps architects, engineers and sustainability consultants quickly find, evaluate and specify products that are healthy for people, the environment, and communities. Products with the Declare label contribute to Living Building Challenge, LEED, WELL, CHPS and Enterprise Green Communities projects.
