GBCI India presents a free two-part webinar, LEED v4: Materials and Resources. Attendees will tour the new system and learn about the updates from LEED 2009. They will come away with concepts, tools and resources that can support project teams along the way.

LEED v4 is streamlined, specialized and offers an enhanced user experience. In the previous versions of LEED, materials were analyzed through the lens of single attributes, such as percentage of recycled content. However, the overall environmental impact of materials cannot be represented by single attributes alone. The new LEED v4 credits help manufacturers tell their sustainability story in a more holistic way, by considering the full supply chain and its contributions to a wide range of products through the adoption of a multi-attribute, life-cycle impact assessment approach, which allows for project teams to make informed decisions during product selection.
