The Future of Green Building: LEED v4

A reminder that last year, effective November 1, 2016, LEED* evolved towards a greater commitment to sustainability and transparency with LEED v4, where:

  • materials are evaluated more holistically using multiple attributes through approaches such as Life Cycle Assessment and Environmental Product Declarations
  • there is a greater emphasis on performance, as reflected in water and energy metering requirements
  • integrative design, envelope commissioning, and acoustics are also some of the new additions**
