Green Building Insulation: The Environmental Benefits

For commercial and institutional buildings, sustainability has become an overarching and
highly important project driver. Key attributes associated with high-performance green building
– including high energy efficiency, occupant comfort, material durability and increased
property values – have led to the adoption of best practices in construction materials and
methods. Among those is the use of more efficient insulation systems, air barriers, and
seamless monolithic roofing systems. One such system, closed-cell spray polyurethane foam
(ccSPF) is the subject of this white paper. Closed-cell spray polyurethane foam has been
shown to offer improved life-cycle analysis and environmental performance, in addition to
superior control of the building enclosure and the indoor environment.
