(Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design)
To achieve a LEED certification, building projects must earn points for specific strategies across various categories. The amount of points they achieve will determine their rating level. LEEDv4.1 is the most recent and comprehensive version of LEED and considers environmental, economic, social and community benefits.
LEED v4.1 is the most recent and comprehensive version of LEED involves all building stakeholders.
Developers, property managers, architects & designers, manufacturers must be involved in the process for the occupant and the community to benefit from sustainable design, construction, operations and performance.
The process considers environmental, economic, social and community benefits.
LEED v4.1 also puts focus on manufacturers to reduce energy, water, waste during manufacturing, carbon footprint during distribution and transportation and overall carbon emissions through the entire production lifecycle. A 2014 UC Berkeley study found that by building to LEED standards, buildings contributed 50% fewer Greenhouse Gas (GHG) than conventionally constructed buildings due to water consumption, 48% fewer GHGs due to solid waste and 5% fewer GHGs due to transportation.
