USGBC Wisconsin: View a webinar on Social Equity and LEED
USGBC Wisconsin, as with USGBC overall, is committed to expanding our mission beyond individual buildings to embrace the larger built environment and broader aspects of sustainability, including a more focused approach to social equity and human health. Release of the social equity LEED credits marked an important step toward fulfilling this strategic goal.
The credits are designed to address social equity from the perspective of everyone who is touched or impacted by a building—including the building’s construction workers, designers, engineers and other project team members; its surrounding community; and those involved in the building’s materials supply chain.
Over the last few months, Shawn Hesse, a USGBC Massachusetts board member, developed a Social Equity Credits and LEED webinar for the global audience on USGBC's education platform. The course provides an introduction to the concept of social equity in the built environment, outlines potential social equity challenges and introduces each of the new LEED credits, including their intent and documentation requirements.
