LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a voluntary, consensus-based, market-driven program that provides third-party verification of green buildings. From individual buildings and homes, to entire neighborhoods and communities, LEED is transforming the way built environments are designed, constructed, and operated. Continuously developing and being upgraded, the next version of the LEED rating system is known as LEED v4 and is set to come into effect in mid to late 2013. This update will open up LEED to a wider range of building types and manufacturing industries, delivering the benefits of green building up and down the supply chain. It will advance environmental footprint issues, like climate change, and encourage optimization of energy and water use. Join us to learn more about the evolution of the LEED rating system and the role that energy efficiency plays in the upcoming version.
