What are Regional Priority (RP) credits?

Answer

The concept of RP Credits was introduced in the LEED 2009 rating systems to incentivize the achievement of credits that address geographically specific environmental priorities. RP Credits are not new LEED credits, but instead are existing credits that USGBC chapters and the LEED International Roundtable have designated as being particularly important for their areas. The incentive to achieve the credits is in the form of a bonus point. If an RP Credit is earned, then a bonus point is awarded to the project’s total points. LEED v4 makes RP Credits accessible to any project in the world.
