Join us as we introduce two powerful performance-based tools that are transforming existing buildings: Arc and LEED v4.1 EBOM. LEED v4.1 is a more inclusive update that allows existing building or existing interiors projects to earn LEED points through building performance monitoring, scoring and analytics and is powered by Arc. Arc, a technology platform for scoring performance and global comparison, offers a straightforward way to measure efficiencies across energy, water, waste, transportation and human experience activities. Sustainability marketing and engagement is made easy with Arc's clean, visual indicators. Arc reduces cost and complexity whether you are starting to green your existing facility, interested in pursuing a sustainability certification, comparing portfolios of facilities, or pursuing climate action goals. Learn how to use Arc and LEED v4.1 to project the best path for your building’s sustainability performance.
