Asphalt offers sustainability benefits across the entire life cycle of a pavement — from production to placement, during in-use, and at the end of life. As the most consistently recycled material in the U.S., asphalt has a proven track record of utilizing post-consumer recycled content. But it's not just about recycling. Asphalt pavements can help a project earn points or credits under all major green construction programs in the United States, including LEED, Green Globes, Greenroads, and Envision.
NAPA is developing a series of documents outlining how asphalt pavements can help project owners earn credits under green construction rating systems. This page will update as new publications are available.
