Is LEED 2009 the most current version of LEED? What is LEED v3?


Launched in April 2009, LEED 2009, sometimes referred to as LEED v2009 or LEED v3, was built on the fundamental structure of the previous rating systems. It also addressed significant technology advancements in the industry and revised the credit weightings (i.e. the allocation of points among credits) within each rating system.

LEED v4, launched in late 2013, is the most current version of LEED and as of October 31, 2016 is the only version of the rating systems open for registration in LEED Online.

Check out the LEED credit library for rating system language and other resources pertaining to both LEED v3/2009 and LEED v4.
