New LEED v4 Launched Last Week at Greenbuild Conference

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

The new version of LEED – that’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design – was officially launched at the annual Greenbuild International Conference and Expo held last week in Philadelphia. As previously reported, there are significant changes to the LEED system with much of it centered around the Materials and Resources credits directly affecting the concrete industry. Manufacturers that disclose environmental impacts, sourcing of their supply chain and hazardous chemicals of their products can help earn points under their Materials and Resources credits.

NRMCA will offer a Webinar to our members with an updated "Concrete’s Role in Sustainable Development" online course on December 9-12 that will feature LEED v4. Subjects covered will include Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs), Responsible Sourcing, LCA and Health Product Declarations (HPDs).
