LEED v4 Updates

USGBC has posted updates to LEED v4 pertaining to the Energy and Atmosphere category. These updates are open to public comment before they are presented to USGBC membership for ballot approval. Updates will officially apply to projects registered after the date of approval; previously registered projects will not be impacted.

Implications of the updates include higher thresholds for energy reductions – both as a prerequisite and for point credit. Projects will have the opportunity to demonstrate these reductions through cost, source energy, or greenhouse gas emissions.

Rushing is actively following these updates to LEED v4, as well as future LEED changes, to best ensure the success of our projects. Learn more about our Sustainability expertise.
