UL Environment Launches LEED Toolkit
UL Environment has launched a LEED toolkit, geared to support the architecture and design community in their product specification and selection processes.
In addition to a redesigned Sustainable Product Guide, the LEED Toolkit provides tip sheets for both LEED v4 (including hotlinks to more detailed resources) and Achieving Points towards Sustainable Ratings Systems (including LEED 2009).
These two one-page tip sheets provide detailed specification tips for various green building credit requirements.
Another component of the toolkit is UL Environment’s education program geared to architecture and design specifiers. It includes a new continuing education unit (CEU), Innovation and Transparency: Building Transformation in LEED version 4. This hour-long CEU has been accredited by the American Institute of Architects (AIA), the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI), and by the Interior Design Continuing Education Council (IDCEC). It will also be offered as a free live webinar beginning Dec. 10th.
Also this week, UL and the USGBC announced a partnership that aims to improve the quality and performance of buildings.
