About

Explore two credit categories: 1) Location and Transportation, which focuses on the actual transportation patterns of building occupants and takes a single, performance-based approach to evaluating a building's transportation characteristics; and 2) the Sustainable Sites credits which focus on the environment surrounding the building and the vital relationships between buildings, ecosystems, and ecosystem services.

This session also includes an overview of the innovation and regional priority credits, recertification, and the establishment and performance requirements. The session will cover each prerequisite and credit in a credit-by-credit format, presenting technical requirements and strategies to achieve them.
