This pilot credit is a useful way to both qualitatively and quantitatively examine the human health implications, environmental impacts, and safety impacts of building materials.

We’ve found it helpful during this project and previous projects to keep a list of products that we have documented for this pilot credit in the past to reference. It is essential to choose products from larger brands that have plenty of research available. The smaller brands will prove to be difficult to find things like Global Warming Potential or Ozone Depletion Potential.

As others have noted, Sherwin Williams has a chart available for many of their products which basically lays out the exact requirements of the spreadsheet needed for this pilot credit. This saves time vs. other products that require more thorough research. I am hopeful that as this credit gains more traction, other companies will follow in their footsteps, and this information will be more readily available for projects in the future.
