LEED® and Sustainable Design Building Materials

Learn how to use the LEED® building rating system so you can achieve better project energy and health outcomes.

There is currently considerate concern about the energy and health impacts of building materials/products. North Americans spend 90% of their time inside buildings. It is critical to know the characteristics of the ingredients in the materials/products surrounding us and how they are affecting us. The where, what, and who of each project changes the emphasis of what we need to know and how we need to protect ourselves and thrive. Using the LEED® building rating system can significantly help us achieve better project energy and health outcomes. LEED® presents an organized approach to provide material/product ingredient transparency and optimization. The system establishes a framework of accountability through requiring compliance to strict governmental and industry standards and certifications. This enables architects and designers to make healthier and more sustainable product choices.
