Jotun Paints has pledged its commitment to the green credentials by ensuring its interior and exterior paints are approved by LEED
(Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design).

Speaking exclusively to facilities management Middle East at this year's Big 5 exhibition, Niru Naik, exterior brand manager, revealed the company's desire to help the environment.

"It's early to discuss in detail but we are in the process of applying for compliance.

A lot of the products we are talking about are already in line with the LEED directives, but it's too premature to say we are fully compliant," he confirmed.

Interiors and exterior paints can help building owners gain points to work towards either the certified, silver, gold or platinum LEED status.

"Obviously, we want to be able to help people achieve the highest LEED rating possible," added Naik.

He explained that not all Jotun paints will comply due to the way in which some technologies are required for specific applications.

But once approved, the paints will be available in a range of colours, appealing to any company wanting to achieve extra LEED points.
