LEED Project Executive Overview

In the larger picture of sustainability, the built environment is a component that can have a significant impact on your organization’s overall CSR Plan. By pursuing Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Certification for your new and existing facilities, your company is affirming that you are conscious of the impact your buildings have on the planet and that you are enhancing your facilities to minimize that impact.

The LEED Certification program is a third-party review process that allows owners of eligible buildings to pursue certification based on the sustainable attributes of the building and site. LEED certification is an official recognition that your building meets the requirements of the United States Green Building Council’s LEED Rating Systems.

The LEED Project Executive Overview will introduce you to the key components of the LEED and provide an overview of the certification process to enable your organization to make an informed decision regarding pursuing LEED certification. The following topics will be covered:

  • What is LEED
  • The LEED Rating Systems
  • The LEED Certification process
  • The data behind the business case for green building
  • Lessons learned
  • Additional incentives for LEED certification
  • Resources available to you moving forward

LEED Project Certification Kick-off

Now that you have decided to pursue LEED certification, the next step is to register and kickoff your project. Assembling your team and identifying your LEED goal early will also help you evaluate choices throughout the certification process with the most impact at the lowest cost.

The decision to pursue LEED certification does not need to be complicated or expensive if your team is proactive and informed. Documenting the sustainable strategies implemented by your project is an important part of LEED certification. Knowing how to efficiently navigate this process will reduce your costs by reducing delays and saving time.

This course will walk you through the project documentation and review process from registration to certification, highlighting nuances that are commonly missed or misunderstood across LEED projects as seen by LEED Reviewers. This course will discuss:

  • Registering your project and understanding the Minimum Program Requirements
  • Campus and multiple building projects
  • Using LEED Online
  • Documenting your project strategies
  • The LEED review process
  • Resources available moving forward
