LEED v4 Passes Ballot, Will Launch This Fall

LEED v4, the latest version of U.S. Green Building Council's green building rating system, will go into effect this fall. The oft-revised and much debated version has been approved by 86 percent of the USGBC membership. Of the votes cast, the user category gave 90 percent approval, while 77 percent of the general interest category approved, and 89 percent of the producer category voted for the new version. Much of the controversy and opposition from industry groups centered on the materials section in LEED v4, resulting in several postponements of the ballot vote to allow for more public commentary. USGBC will introduce educational webinars and reference guides for LEED v4 at the Greenbuild International Conference and Expo in Philadelphia in November. There currently are more than 100 projects participating in the LEED v4 beta program, and enrollment in the program is still open to more projects.
