Sustainability

AEP Span is committed to its environmental stewardship and leading the way to a healthier built environment. Having completed a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), AEP Span is the first in the architectural metal panel industry to provide a Product-Specific Type III Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) with a third-party certification and external verification for its two main supply chains. 

AEP Span’s selection of cool colors assist in meeting the sustainability targets developed through LEED, Energy Star, and CA Title 24. The solar performance data of our standard coatings has been tested and maintained through the Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC).
