Understanding LEED V4


USGBC announced a new version of the standard (LEED v4) in November 2013 with implementation by Oct 31, 2016. This updated rating system includes product transparency, whole building life-cycle analysis, and new energy standards - believed to provide a framework for holistic green buildings.

USGBC LEED v4 works for all buildings - from homes to corporate headquarters - at all phases of development. Projects pursuing LEED v4 certification earn points across several areas intended to address sustainability issues. Based on the number of points achieved, a project then receives one of four LEED rating levels: Certified, Silver, Gold and Platinum.

Projects might encompass the following common market sectors:

  • New Construction

  • Core and Shell Development

  • Schools

  • Retail

  • Data Centers

  • Warehouses & Distribution Centers

  • Hospitality

  • Healthcare

  • Commercial Interiors

Key Terms For LEED V4

 

Environmental Product Declarations (EPD): the summary document of data collected in the Life Cycle Assessments (LCA) as specified by a relevant Product Category Rule (PCR). EPDs can enable comparison between products if the underlying studies and assumptions are similar. 

Life Cycle Assessment or Analysis (LCA): a technique to assess environmental impacts associated with all the stages of a product's life from cradle to grave (i.e., from raw material extraction through materials processing, manufacture, distribution, use, repair and maintenance, and disposal or recycling), as defined in ISO 14040.

Product Category Rule (PCR): defines the rules and requirements for creating EPDs of a certain product category, as described in ISO 14025. PCRs allow for review and comparison of different environmental product attributes among products in a defined category.

Health Product Declaration (HPD): document used to report building product content and associated health information.  Chemical substances are screened against the HPD Priority Hazard Lists for human and environmental health impacts.
