The Global Alternative Compliance Path supplement is complimentary to the LEED 2009 Reference Guide for Green Building Operations and Maintenance, the most comprehensive guide for the design, construction and major renovations of commercial and institutional buildings.
Alternative compliance paths (ACPs) to LEED credits provide additional options or approaches that address unique circumstances and accommodate advancements in science and technology. ACPs allow LEED to be more flexible and applicable to a wider range of projects. The LEED 2009 EB:O&M Global ACPs were developed for sustainable ongoing operations of existing commercial and institutional buildings. These Global ACPs can be applied at the discretion of the project team, based on applicability; they are not mandatory for any project. Some Global ACPs are available only for projects outside the U.S., and others are available for all LEED projects regardless of location, as indicated in the credit language.Navigate your LEED project from registration through certification.
