Jenny and her team (the same team behind LEEDuser's EBOM content) have analyzed the new direction for LEED-EBOM and will share their analysis: How the alternative commuting credit could get a lot harder for all buildings, especially schools New, clearer parameters for performance metrics in the site management section More difficult baseline criteria for water efficiency. Is it truly cost-effective? How a 20% improvement option for energy efficiency is out the window, and what that could mean How new purchasing criteria could make the MR section a bit trickier Continuing education LEEDuser will apply for continuing education approval for this webcast, but due to the short turnaround time we cannot guarantee that it will be available.
