The system is owned and developed by Sweden’s largest organisation for sustainable community building, the Sweden Green Building Council, which also carries out the certifications. Certification levels: Gold, Silver and Bronze.

Lindab’s role in Miljöbyggnad certification

Lindab can help to accumulate points in a range of different areas. There are no products with Miljöbyggnad approval, the choice of a product is based on which level is aimed for in the different areas. Higher ratings can be achieved by selecting our products and constructing air-tight and energy-efficient systems. Our complete product portfolio and associated documentation promote the basis for an optimal solution and complete final system documentation for handover to the end customer.

1. Heating output requirements

Reward buildings that are designed and built to require low heating output when it is coldest during a normal year.

Lindab Safe is the first air duct system in the world to receive Eurovent certification. This means that you can feel safe with the products you buy as well as being absolutely sure that they maintain high quality and achieve air tightness class D. Our air duct system provides a circulating flow of energy, where almost all of the supplied energy is fed back to the heat exchanger which in turn heats the new supply air.

 

3. Energy use

Reward buildings that are designed, built, and managed to achieve low energy use.

A record number of energy-efficient initiatives have been implemented in the area of climate policy in the past five years. Increased requirements for energy saving and a focus on improved indoor climate leads to demands on new technology and innovation to reduce energy consumption in buildings. Lindab offers tailor-made solutions for each room, resulting in optimal energy use.

Our air duct system provides a circulating flow of energy, where almost all of the supplied energy is fed back to the heat exchanger which in turn heats the new supply air.

Lindab’s unique product, UltraLink, takes energy efficiency to a new level. UltraLink is a stable solution that accurately and reliably measures air flow and temperature. It is also easy to read and control the entire ventilation system to maintain an optimal level for both the building and its occupants. Ventilating according to demand is the best option both environmentally and financially, as well as in terms of people’s comfort.

Lindab Pascal is an intelligent, demand-controlled ventilation system. The system adjusts the indoor climate by itself in relation to the weather outdoors, and is compatible with both airborne climate systems and waterborne chilled beams.

 

6. Radon

Reward buildings that are designed, built, and managed to achieve low indoor radon levels.

Lindab’s systems ventilate hazardous emissions from radon. Studies have shown that increased air flows reduce sick leave. Our complete ventilation system optimises air flow in an energy-efficient way and means that the people in the building can always breathe fresh air.

 

7. Ventilation

Reward buildings that are designed, built, and managed to achieve proper ventilation.

A good indoor climate has a great impact on how people understand and use information. Indoor air can be five times more polluted than outdoor air. Lindab’s motto is ”Build tight, ventilate right” which in turn requires FTX-systems; mechanical supply and exhaust air with heat recovery. In this way, the outdoor air can be filtered and cooled or heated while hazardous substances and moisture are removed from the building in an energy- efficient manner. This creates the best conditions for the people using the building.

8. Damp proofing

Reward buildings that are designed, built, and managed to reduce to a minimum the risk of future damage caused by damp and water.

Water vapour, particles and gases such as CO2, genereated by occupants, are continuously fed into the indoor air. In regards to moisture problems in buildings and buildings in general, the choice of ventilation system is of great importance. Lindab offers complete ventilation systems for all types of buildings. Healthy buildings mean healthy people.

 

9. Thermal climate - winter & 10. Thermal climate - summer

Reward buildings that are designed, built, and managed to achieve a good thermal indoor climate during the winter. Reward buildings that are designed, built, and managed to achieve a good thermal indoor climate during the summer.

Lindab’s products, our complete range of product selection, and design software, installation references, and well thought-out designs ensure that the desired performance is achieved. The air temperature and air circulation rate in a room depend entirely on the occupancy rate, the air quality, and air temperature requirements along with the concentration of hazardous gases and particles. Lindab Pascal adjusts the air volume and regulates the temperature of the indoor climate, creating a quiet and draught-free environment.

 

13. Log book with building materials

Reward buildings with documentation of what inbuilt building products and building materials contain.

It is a matter of course for Lindab to provide our customers with information about the content and environmental impact of our products. We have decided to issue building product declarations (BPD) for all key products sold to customers. BPD is a Swedish form for reporting environmental information for construction products. This includes, for example, a detailed list of all ingoing materials and substances, how to recycle the product and facts about the environmental impact. The information contributes to more conscious product, selections, which in turn lead to a better climate both indoors and outdoors. The work on preparing the declarations for our products and registering them is ongoing. In order to facilitate documentation, Lindab’s products are registered in several systems that offer a digital logbook service.

 

14. Phasing out of hazardous substances

Reward buildings that are designed, built, and managed using the minimum number of hazardous substances in materials and building products.

All products with a building product declaration (BPD) are assessed by Byggvarubedömingen and SundaHus and are registered in the BASTA database and the Nordic Ecolabel’s Building Materials Database. This verifies that Lindab’s products meet the requirements and guidelines in REACH, the European chemicals regulation. Almost all of Lindab’s products achieves the gold level according to Miljöbyggnad.

BPD is a form for reporting environmental information for construction products. This includes, for example, a detailed list of all ingoing materials and substances, how to recycle the product, and facts about the environmental impact. Byggvarubedömningen and SundaHus performs assessments of products based on chemical content, life cycle, and social responsibility. BASTA is a scientifically based self-declaration system with the purpose to phase out substances of concern from building and construction products.

 

15. Climate impact of frame and foundation

Increase knowledge of the climate impact of the frame and foundation, increase the demand for and availability of EPDs and reward measures that reduce the climate impact of the frame and foundation.

Lindab has decided to issue building product declarations (BPD) for all key products sold to customers. BPD is a Swedish form for reporting environmental information for construction products. This includes, for example, a detailed list of all ingoing materials and substances and how to recycle the product. Section 5 describes the product’s environmental impact. The products’ life-cycle impact is then assessed by Byggvarubedömningen, a Swedish non-profit organization owned by large constructors and property owners in Sweden. We work continuously to reduce our climate impact, for instance by offering customised products and flexible transportation options to minimise waste. In addition, products are as much as possible packaged in the same boxes, to reduce the amount of packaging materials. All packaging materials are recyclable and Lindab’s cardboard boxes contain up to 97.5% recycled material. Many of our products consist of only a few materials and are often easy to disassemble, which means that each material can be recycled efficiently. Section 10 describes our recommendations for waste management. We document our work with sustainability in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative, GRI. The report is available for download on our website. Lindab have been part of the development for the product-specific rules (PCR) for ventilation products together with EPD Norway and other companies in the ventilation industry. The rules are needed to create comparable EPDs and was published 2021. We are now working to create EPD for the most relevant products. The documents will be available here.
