LEED Reference Guide for Green Interior Design and Construction with Global ACPs

LEED version: v2009
With Global Alternative Compliance Paths

The Global Alternative Compliance Path supplement is complimentary to the LEED 2009 Reference Guide for Green Interior Design and Construction, the most comprehensive guide for the design, construction and renovation of commercial and institutional interiors projects.

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 Interior Design and Construction (ID&C) Global ACPs were developed to address tenant spaces, primarily in office, retail, 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.
