AZEK Earns “Green Approved Product” Status Under NAHB National Green Building Standard™

SCRANTON, Pa., April 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — The NAHB Research Center’s “Green Approved Product” seal of approval has been awarded to AZEK Building Products for its AZEK® Trim, AZEK Mouldings, AZEK Deck and AZEK Porch product lines.  This means the products are eligible to earn points toward certification of a given project under the National Green Building Standard™.

The NAHB Research Center program was created to help bridge the gap between manufacturers who make sustainable products and builders, architects and designers who want to use them.  It is awarded to manufacturers who provide third-party evidence that their products meet the criteria for use in buildings certified to the National Green Building Standard™.

Azek deck“This program is an excellent way to guide architects and building products specifiers on which products can contribute to National Green Building Standard points,” said Jim Gross, VP Sales, AZEK Building Products.  “We are pleased that AZEK products have demonstrated the durability and sustainability to be designated as Green Approved Products.”

The National Green Building Standard does not define criteria for certifying products as “green.” It simply indicates that the products are eligible for earning points under the National Green Building Standard toward green certification of a building.  Specific products that have been approved by the program can be found at  Or, locate the Green Scoring Tool at
