Sustainable design starts with resources on the ground. Dig deeper into the SITES v2 materials life cycle credits from specification to use, maintenance, deconstruction, and reuse. Discover synergies between SITES v2 and LEED v4 materials and resource credits. Learning Objectives:
Summarize specific credit synergies and differences between Materials and Resource prerequisites and credits for SITES V2 and LEED V4 BD+C.
Describe three ways that a project can achieve SITES V2 Materials Prerequisite: Eliminate the Use of Wood from Threatened Tree Species.
Discuss strategies to achieve SITES V2 and LEED V4 credits related to producer responsibility and information transparency (SITES C5.7, C5.8, C5.9 and LEED V4 credits- Building Product Disclosure and Optimization).
Understand current environmental and human health impacts of a product’s life-cycle and strategies to specify products with reduced impacts.
