Last month, the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) announced that LEED v4 passed with a final vote of 86 percent in favor of adopting the new guidelines. According to an article by EDC Magazine, the following milestones were achieved in the approval process:
- 90 percent approval from the user category of the voting body
- 77 percent approval from the general interest category
- 89 percent approval from the producer category
- 46 countries and territories around the world and all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia represented in the voting pool
The development of LEED v4 means new requirements and guidelines will be implemented to push projects to achieve a higher degree of sustainable environmental outcomes. Download USGBC's LEED v4 User Guide for more information.
