The LEED rating system continuously improves, guiding the market towards more environmentally sustainable strategies and decisions, and responding to continuous advances in technology. This is accomplished in a number of ways through changes to the rating system requirements.
The LEED v4 update included changes to most credits in the system, and has engaged stakeholders from all parts of the green building industry. It will have the biggest impact on CO2 emissions of any rating system developed by USGBC and it takes an unprecedented stand on human health. LEED v4 changes the way project teams think, integrate, plan, execute, and operate their buildings.
USGBC-MGC is pleased to offer a presentation series which will explore each credit category within the LEED v4 rating system. The LEED v4 series will take place from noon to 1:30 pm on Wednesdays July 29 – Aug 26, and be presented by members of the USGBC-MGC Speakers Bureau. Attend one or all.
