When the USGBC released LEED v4 in the fall of 2013, there were several substantial updates to the widely adopted green building rating system.
Specifically, the Materials and Resources section saw many changes such as, for the first time, the inclusion of material human health considerations. As the market adapts, industry leaders are combining their expertise to make LEED v4 compliance easier.
GreenScreen/Clean Production Action and GreenCircle have partnered to facilitate the process of earning the Building Product Disclosure and Optimization - Material Ingredients credits in LEED v4.
Through the development of "How To" guidance and LEED v4 Compliance certifications respectively, Clean Production Action and GreenCircle are making the GreenScreen methods for earning these credits simpler.
Manufacturer Inventories and Optimization Reporting with GreenCircle's LEED v4 Compliance certification will provide assurance to manufacturers, project teams, and LEED reviewers that certified products meet the credit's intent and can be counted toward the credit points.
