About

This session explores the LEED Sustainable Sites category in a credit by credit format, reviewing the overall category intent and the individual intents of the prerequisites and credits within it. Learn the technical requirements of the credits and, through real-world case examples shared by USGBC LEED Faculty, strategies that work to achieve them.

This five-session webinar series focuses on the technical requirements of the LEED for New Construction and Major Renovations 2009 Rating System, addressing the rating system's seven credit categories: Sustainable Sites (SS), Water Efficiency (WE), Energy and Atmosphere (EA), Materials and Resources (MR), Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ), Innovation in Design (ID) and Regional Priority (RP).

Join us as USGBC LEED Faculty - both experts in LEED and skilled presenters - share personal case examples and demonstrate how credits have been successfully achieved on real LEED projects.
