How much LEED do you need?
from Dallas Business Journal
LEED certification is about much more than solar panels and low-flow toilets. Short for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, projects are graded on overall environmental sustainability, not just energy efficiency, said Jonathan Kraatz, executive director of the U.S. Green Building Council’s North Texas Chapter. That includes recycling policies, access to mass transit, walkability, the use of smart thermostats and energy management systems, water efficiency and use of natural light, just to name a few.
