With only six months remaining to register projects under LEED 2009, now is the time to prepare for full implementation of LEED v4. Beginning November 1, 2016, any project pursuing LEED must do so under LEED v4, which is significantly revised from LEED 2009.
On November 1, 2016, major changes to the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC®) LEED® rating system will go into effect, including a significant overhaul of the Materials and Resources (MR) category that will shift expectations on sustainability reporting and performance. Despite the fact that adhering to LEED guidelines is often optional, products that meet the new complex and demanding transparency and performance requirements of LEED v4 will be more likely to gain favor with the architectural community moving forward.
