Understanding LEED® for Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintenance (TM)

There are millions of existing buildings and numerous opportunities to reduce their energy waste, save money, improve health and productivity, and exploit new technologies that have recently become available to help the environment. This OnDemand Webinar will help you understand how the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED® for Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance™ rating and certification system works. The USGBC LEED® for Existing Buildings: O&M™ program's goal is obtaining higher performance in buildings that have already been constructed and currently are in operation. The LEED® for Existing Buildings: O&M™ rating system helps building owners and operators assess the performance of their buildings and assists in the identification of goals and strategies that allow uniform consideration of improvements. This rating system emphasizes maximizing operational service and efficiency while minimizing environmental impacts. It addresses whole-building energy and water use, indoor comfort and air quality, cleaning and maintenance issues, including chemical use, recycling programs, purchasing activity, transportation integration and exterior maintenance programs.
