To provide an incentive for the achievement of credits that address geographically specific environmental priorities.
Earn 1 of the 6 Regional Priority Credits (credits identified by the USGBC Regional Councils and Chapters as having additional regional environmental importance). A database of Regional Priority Credits and their geographic applicability is available on the USGBC Web site.
One point is awarded for each Regional Priority credit achieved. No more than 4 credits identified as Regional Priority credits may be earned. USGBC has prioritized credits for projects located in the U.S., Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Guam. All other international projects should check the database for eligible Regional Priority credits.
