D14 - The Impact of LEED: Past, Present and Future

Thursday, November 15 from 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM | 180 « Back

Abstract Text:

In a world that is constantly evolving, one of the hallmarks of LEED is “continuous improvement.” With each new version, LEED raises the bar to increase the impact on our built environment while also ensuring that LEED not only meets different markets where they are, but also that the rating system accelerates the speed with which the market moves. Join USGBC, those in the field, and thought leaders in key areas of green building to discuss why LEED matters. And what the expected outcomes of using the LEED rating system as a performance standard has done and will do - past, present and future with an aim to build flexibility and drive higher performance buildings where there is a direct correlation between actions and outcomes.

Identify how the LEED system goals drive development and evolution of LEED

View LEED through different lens such as health, social equity, climate, and resilience.
