A11 - The Future of LEED

Wednesday, November 20 from 11:15 AM to 12:15 PM | B206 « Back

Abstract Text:

We live in a world that is constantly changing. Cities around the world are mitigating climate risks by pledging to raise the bar to reduce carbon emissions. Investors are weighing their opportunities, consciously screening for projects that align with their values and prove ESG is a winning strategy. And building owners are pivoting focus to the occupants to reduce inequality, combat health concerns and deliver value to support the day-to-day needs of everyone and raise their living standard. The possibilities and opportunities for LEED are endless - so we call upon you, our leaders, to ask… what should the next level of LEED address? This is THE session at Greenbuild to hear about v4.1 and weigh in on where LEED goes next while hearing from your peers and other leaders in the green building industry. Through transparency and continuous improvement, LEED’s trajectory is always to raise the bar on performance throughout the lifecycle of buildings, advance net zero and net positive practices, reward leaders based on their performance and to support building owners as they track progress toward environmental, social and governance goals. Join in on a collaborative discussion that will explore what is next for the world’s leading standard for green buildings.
