‘LEED 2012’ Rating System Overhaul

Posted on March 14, 2011


Environmental Building News provided an excellent preview of the proposed, post-LEED v3 (2009) Rating System revisions, which are posted on its website, BuildingGreen.com. Deemed “LEED 2012” for its expected release date, the revisions are comprehensive and global in that it is believed every Rating System will see changes, and some are very substantial. 

The US Green Building Council’s first public comment period for these changes is closed as of 1-19-11, with at least one future comment period expected later this year. Further developments on the Systems can be tracked on the USGBC website here.
