Did you know that we provide online education resources through the USGBC to help you maintain LEED Accreditation? Instead of (or in addition to) going to in-person workshops, these online resources allow you to maintain accreditation from anywhere, anytime, at your own comfort.
We're proud to show Shawn Hesse's – USGBC MA Board President & architect at emersion DESIGN – presentation on Social Equity Credits and LEED. The USGBC gives credits for social equity, meaning you have another checkbox you can hit when designing a project, or looking to retrofit an existing one. These credits are Social Equity in the Project, Social Equity in the Community, and Social Equity in the Supply Chain.
Shawn's presentation is a primer to social equity in the built environment, discusses potential problems with social equity, and introduces each of the three LEED credits, their intentions, and documentation requirements.
