LEED Evolution and Innovation: LEED Innovation and Pilot Credits – Strategies and Certification

The LEED Evolution and Innovation Webinar Series consists of 7 consecutive weeks on Wednesdays in March and April.  Attend one or all.


What is beyond LEED, and what may be coming next? The answer to this question may reside within Innovation and Pilot credit – both of which are introduced in this first webinar in the “LEED Innovation & Pilot Credits” series.  Innovation credits provide the opportunity to achieve credit for exceptional performance above the requirements set by LEED or innovative performance in Green Building categories not specifically addressed by the LEED Green Building Rating System. LEED Pilot Credits may be used as “innovation”, but also inform the continued evolution of LEED. Pilot credits are refined through LEED project evaluations before they complete the balloting process for introduction into LEED. This session will introduce the criteria and certification process for Innovation & Pilot credits.


  • Explain the elements needed to document successful LEED Innovation Credits
  • Recognize different options to achieve LEED Innovation credits
  • Identify the benefits of Innovation credits to project teams
  • Distinguish between innovative strategies and innovative results
  • Discover at least two ways to engage in the evolution of LEED through Pilot Credits
