Earn Green Credits with Electronically Tintable Smart Glass
One of the easiest ways to gather green credits is to maximize the use of natural light in buildings for the well-being of the people inside – a job SageGlass was designed for.

BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method), first published by the Building Research Establishment (BRE) in 1990, is the world’s longest established method of assessing, rating, and certifying the sustainability of buildings. More than 250,000 buildings have been BREEAM certified and over a million are registered for certification – many in the UK and others in more than 50 countries around the world.
With SageGlass, your project can get up to 48 BREEAM credits.
Estidama is a building design methodology for constructing and operating buildings and communities more sustainably. "Estidama" is the Arabic word for sustainability.The program is not itself a green building rating system like LEED or BREEAM, but rather a collection of ideals that are imposed in an elective building code type of format.
With SageGlass, your project can get up to 42 Estidama credits.
The Global Sustainability Assessment System (GSAS) is the first performance-based system in the Middle East and North Africa region. Its primary objective is to create a sustainable built environment that minimizes ecological impacts and reduces the consumption of resources while addressing the local needs and environmental conditions specific to the region.
5 of the 8 categories of GSAS may be boosted by using SaintGobain’s electrochromic glazing SageGlass in the building design.
WELL has become the leading global rating system for buildings seeking to enhance human health and wellness. Designers and specifiers are looking for building products which contribute to their WELL project goals while delivering optimal performance.
SageGlass can contribute to five out of seven concepts of the WELL building standard for healthier buildings: Air, Light, Fitness, Comfort and Mind.
