USGBC Delays LEED 2012 Vote, Renames Program
The newest version of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards was supposed to have been voted on in June 2012. Due to concerns from several LEED-certified institutions, the vote has been postponed until June 2013 by LEED’s governing organization, the U.S. Green Building Council. The new set of standards will now be known as LEED v4, while the current set of standards, LEED 2009, will stay in place for users until 2015. Some LEED members were concerned about the severity of the proposed changes, the lack of knowledge and exposure to the new set of resources (described by USGBC president Rick Fedrizzi in a blog post as “forms, documentation, education, and LEED online”), lack of comprehension of certification requirements due to confusing language, and lack of public consensus in LEED’s Materials and Resources category during the public comment sessions held in 2011. As a result, the USGBC launched a fifth public comment session meant to further acclimate members to the changes and to gather additional feedback. Around 20,000 comments have been submitted thus far. —Erik Ziedses des Plantes
