USGBC and ACC launch new LEED-based initiative

The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and the American Chemistry Council have launched a new LEED-centred initiative aimed at ensuring the continued use of sustainable and environmentally protective products in buildings through technical and science-based approaches.

Sharing the goal of advancing sustainability in the built environment, the two organizations are aiming to can develop a path to stronger, science-based standards that achieve measurable progress in sustainability.  According to an announcement released by the USGBC in late August, LEED is regularly updated through a rigorous development process that includes public comments, technical review and balloting. USGBC and ACC will work within that framework to incorporate state-of-the-art safety, sustainability and life-cycle based approaches to LEED.  More information about the initiative between the two organizations can be found here.
