Now You Can Easily Evaluate And Report Your
Product's Sustainability And LEED™ Potential

Lead Dog GQ is a new computer software program, designed to help manufacturers determine the sustainability or greenness of a product and position it for potential use in projects certified by the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System™.

Lead Dog GQ was designed with extensive input from both manufacturers and AEC industry experts as a baseline to help manufacturers assess both their product and their company as they relate to environmental performance, water and energy conservation, recycling and other criteria.

How Lead Dog GQ Works

Lead Dog GQ allows product manufacturers to perform an in-depth analysis of the source and content of the raw materials (feedstock) that they use as well their own manufacturing processes. Recyclability, installed product performance and other factors, such as distribution methods, testing standards and documentation, are also addressed.

This evaluation process yields a Green Quotient, a numeric percentage from 0 to 100, which helps to rate the suitability of a product within the sustainable environment and allows for the consistent comparison of similar products from different manufacturers through standardized reporting forms. The program also allows the user to add supplemental product specific data, such as test performance results and third-party certification documentation.

Based on the input data, the program also identifies the specific LEED points to which the product could potentially contribute. LEED is a voluntary, consensus-based national standard for developing high-performance, sustainable buildings and administered by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).


Step thorough Lead Dog GQ's easy-to-use interface. You'll see that there is no better way to evaluate and report your product's sustainability.
