Fifth Public Comment Period Now Open for LEED v4

WASHINGTON, D.C.—The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) announces the opening of the fifth public comment period for the proposed update to its LEED green building program.

The comment period, which will close on December 10, enables the building community to view the most recent draft of the rating systems and provide comments where any substantive changes have been made.

“LEED v4 will have the greatest impact of any rating system we've developed by focusing on building performance and rewarding innovative product manufacturers who offer best in class products,” says Scot Horst, Senior Vice President, LEED, USGBC. “LEED v4 will help change the way project teams think, integrate, plan, execute and operate their buildings.”

LEED v4 continues to push the envelope on energy efficiency, allocating nearly 20 percent of all points to optimizing energy performance over the stringent ASHRAE 90.1-2010, which would do more to help curb CO2 emissions than any LEED rating system in its 12 year history.

READ: Scot Horst speaks with I&S about the initial pushback against LEED v4, and what the USGBC has learned. 

In addition to bringing green building solutions to more market sectors, including data centers, warehouses and distribution centers, hospitality, mid-rise residential, and existing schools and retail, the next version includes more options for projects outside of the U.S., making LEED the common language for sustainability around the globe.
