Sustainable Decking Products


Our decking products meet LEED requirements for builders and our commercial products have contributed to the LEED certifications of some high-profile venues. LEED is a pointbased system created in part by the U.S. Green Building Council, which Trex participates in, to reward points to building projects that incorporate efficient and safe, eco-friendly products. Trex residential decking products can add up to five points to a project— four points in the Materials and Resources category for being composed of up to 95% recycled materials, and one point in the Innovation and Design category. Our commercial railing products also typically contribute to LEED certification points in the Materials and Resources category based on recycled aluminium, steel, stainless steel and glass content. LEED-designated buildings (Silver, Gold or Platinum) tend to attract higher demand, premium rates and longer occupancy leases, thereby supporting continued and growing demand for products that can facilitate LEED designations.

The International Code Council Evaluation Service® (ICC-ES) under the Sustainable Attributes Verification and Evaluation (SAVE) Progran™ verified and authenticated 95% reclaimed/recycled content for Trex decking. ICC-ES SAVE is a non-profit, limited liability company that does technical evaluations of building products, components, methods and meterials. The evaluation process culminates with the issuance of technical reports that, because they directly affress the issue of code compliance, are extremely useful to both regulatory agencies and building product manufacturers.
