STAYING IN THE GAME WITH LEED v4
Over the past 10 years the LEED rating system developed by the U.S. Green Building Council has steadily transformed the marketplace and is set to do so again with the released of LEED v4. The radically overhauled Materials and Resources (MR) credits will create opportunities for manufacturers that take the path to transparency through Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs), Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Reports and Health Product Declarations (HPDs).
