USGBC Announces Two Additions to LEED Rating System


Latest News > Green Building News

November 29 — The U.S. Green building Council (USGBC) has announced two additions to its LEED green building rating system.

The LEED for Retail rating system is intended to meet the unique design and construction needs of that market segment and enable retailers to integrate green building design, construction and operation into ground-up construction, retail interior and build-out projects.

The LEED Volume Program was designed to address the green building certification needs of high-volume property developers. It streamlines the process of getting LEED certification, making it faster and more manageable for organizations such as national retailers, hospitality providers and government entities. The LEED Volume program uses a prototype-based approach so these types of organizations can deliver a consistent end product and achieve certification faster than would be possible with individual building reviews.

Nearly 100 companies have participated in a pilot program since 2007, including Bank of America, Best Buy, Starbucks and Target.
