Support the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED v4 Standard

American business leaders are speaking out in dismay over the American Chemistry Council’s recent political attacks on the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED v4 (formerly known as LEED 2012) standard for offering a voluntary credit for avoidance of chemicals of concern.

 

LEED is a voluntary standard that enables builders to work toward goals of energy savings, less toxic materials, and other sustainable goals. The USGBC LEED v4 is acknowledging that this movement to avoid chemicals of concern is an important part of the sustainability of a building; it would reward both disclosure of chemicals in products and avoidance of chemicals of concern in its new credits.

Please sign on to this letter of support, which will be sent to the General Services Administration.
