In this course, participants will learn which Materials & Resources (MR) credits in LEED v4 your project can easily achieve, and what you need to know to get them. TheMR credits in LEED v4 move us away from single-attribute product selection, and toward having a richer set of data to make more robust product selections using multiple attributes.

The following will be covered:
● Product transparency and LEED
● Health Product Declarations & Cradle to Cradle
● Environmental Product Declarations
● Sourcing of Raw Materials
● Low-emitting materials, occupant health, and LEED
● All About VOCs: content & emissions We’ll look at the things to watch out for in key product categories, and how you can identify preferable alternatives.
