What are the differences between the first and second editions of the Core Concepts Guide?


The second edition covers LEED and its rating system categories in greater depth. The second edition guide significantly expands upon the foundational concepts behind green building and LEED. This allows us to further investigate additional strategies for implementation. The second addition also utilizes more case studies in order to provide examples of the breadth and depth of green building.
