GreenCE, Inc., provider of sustainable continuing education for design professionals, has launched a comprehensive LEED v4 specification program for building product manufacturers. The program was designed to educate building product manufacturers about the new green building rating system and features video modules, animation, and case-studies.
Recently, the US Green Building Council (USGBC) released its new LEED v4 rating systems, the most widely used green building programs in the world. The new LEED certification program includes Health Product Declarations (HPDs) to design healthier and more efficient buildings. The HPD plays a significant role in the new LEED v4 green building rating system, providing information about a product’s contents and related health issues. GreenCE is helping building product manufacturers meet these new specification requirements by utilizing a multi-disciplinary team of biologists, architects, and LEED experts, the company says.
Last October, GreenCE launched what it said is the industry’s first free LEED Exam Prep program to educate design professionals about green building principles and the LEED rating system. The LEED Exam Prep course features video, animation, music, and case studies.
The US Green Building Council last November released its LEED v4 rating system, which utilize life cycle assessment, environmental product declarations, and health product declarations to design healthier and more efficient buildings.
