The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) recently called for proposals to solicit feedback and concepts for the next version of LEED. The request follows a successful public input process for the development of LEED 4.1. LEED is updated through a continuous improvement process, and with each new version USGBC is evolving LEED’s approach and challenging the building sector to be more resource efficient and sustainable, according to a USGBC news release.
In April, USGBC released the complete suite of LEED v4.1 rating systems. LEED v4.1 emphasizes the human experience with increased emphasis on improving the health and well-being of building occupants.
“With LEED v4.1 we have fundamentally transformed our rating system development process,” said Mahesh Ramanujam, president & CEO, USGBC in a news release. “It has allowed us to become more agile and adaptable to incorporate real time feedback so that we can realistically raise the bar on the marketplace.”
