The buildings in which we live, work and play protect us from nature's extremes, yet they also affect our health and environment in countless ways. Patterns of development, transportation infrastructure, building location and design have direct and indirect influences on human health, solid waste, water and air quality.
The Seattle LEED User Group (SLUG) of the Cascadia Green Building Council invites you to join in a learning opportunity on the LEED v4 rating system. From Life Cycle Assessment to material sourcing, the LEED v4 rating system is helping to change the way we look at building materials.
Part two of the series introduces two new materials credits in the version 4 rating system: Building Life-Cycle Impact Reduction and Building Product Disclosure and Optimization - Sourcing of Raw Materials.
