That complicated new Materials and Resources (MR) section of LEED v4 that we debated for years? It's here. Are you ready? If you'reaccustomed to looking for products that earn LEED points by checking boxes for recycled content, regional materials, and other single attributes used in previous versions of LEED, the MR category in LEED v4 can be disorienting. Developed by Nadav Malin, Tristan Roberts, and others from BuildingGreen, "Finding Products for LEED v4: A Guide" examines where the building industry is now with material selection, and how USGBC intends to use material-related credits for the next few years to encourage better building performance.
-Describe ways in which the LCA approach is gaining ground in LEED v4 and how the transition is reinforced by manufacturer transparency and disclosure.
-Provide examples of standards and programs not previously seen in LEED and explain how they're geared to spurmarket development and better performance.
-Summarize the various types of EPDs and clarify the relationship between EPDs, LCAs, and program operators.
-Differentiate hazard- and risk- assessment methodologies, how they complement or oppose each other, and how they relate to transparency.
