Sustainable Buildings: the Evolution of LEED Towards Transparency and Multi-Attribute Criteria
Webinar qualifies for continuing education hour
For industry players who are sensitive to the cause of sustainable development
Sustainability in building construction is constantly evolving. The recent changes to the LEED v4 rating system confirm the trend towards transparency in disclosure of information related to construction materials. This new version also provides evidence that single-attribute evaluation (regional materials, recycled content or VOC content) isn’t enough anymore. Construction materials are now evaluated through their global environmental impact, by means of multi-attribute criteria, which are at the basis of credits regarding Building Disclosure and Optimization.
