Lighting enables visual engagement with our built environment, with innovative manufacturers raising the performance bar ever higher. Join us in this one-hour course to evaluate how lighting products contribute to LEED v4 certification. We will review the program frameworks and most important LEED v4 credits, as they relate to lighting products, and identify steps that can be taken by the manufacturer to increase their products’ contributions to these rating systems.


  1. Describe the purpose and structure of LEED v4
  2. Assess how lighting products support achievement of LEED v4 credits, such as Sustainable Sites credit Light Pollution Reduction for LEED BD+C
  3. List the LEED credits, including Energy and Atmosphere credit Optimize Energy Performance for LEED BD+C and ID+C related to lighting products for new and existing buildings and interiors
  4. Determine what information is required to document individual LEED credits, such as Materials and Resources credit Building Product Disclosure and Optimization – Material Ingredients for LEED BD+C
