Here’s why LEED v4 is better:
- Includes a focus on materials that goes beyond how much is used to get a better understanding of what’s in the materials specified for buildings and the effect those components have on human health and the environment.
- Takes a more performance-based approach to indoor environmental quality to ensure improved occupant comfort.
- Brings the benefits of smart grid thinking to the forefront with a credit that rewards projects for participating in demand response programs.
- Provides a clearer picture of water efficiency by evaluating total building water use.
