Second public comment period for USGBC rating system

Published by Julia Salerno, August 31, 2011.

The US Green Building Council (USGBC) has opened the second public comment period for the proposed update to its LEED green building rating system, coined LEED 2012. The comment period, which will close on September 14, 2011, is the next step in the continuous improvement process and on-going development of the LEED program.

Following the strategy successfully applied to the development of the LEED Canada 2009 rating systems, we anticipate Canadian requirements will closely match those established in the US. It is therefore important that Canadians participate fully in the public comment process.

For a quick overview of some of the key proposed changes, read this article from LEEDuser. The CaGBC and its Technical Advisory Groups (TAGs) continue to provide input into the development process - we strongly encourage all Canadians interested in the continued success of LEED to have their voices heard as well!
