Today, LEED v4 is the most rigorous green building rating system in the world. From improving energy performance to emphasizing human health and integrative building design, LEED is encouraging project teams to operate beyond the status quo.
Canadians are stepping up, with over 600 registered projects to date. The early adopters have proven their abilities, and helped drive change in the industry including greater manufacturer transparency and disclosure. They have also taught us where the challenges lie, and where LEED can be improved. This knowledge is the basis for LEED v4.1.
LEED v4.1 is not a full version change, but rather an incremental update to the LEED rating systems. Updates will be released over the course of 2018, and CaGBC will continue to provide input into the ongoing development work. Alternative Compliance Paths for Canadian project teams will be developed as needed.
LEED v4.1 O+M beta
The first LEED v4.1 upgrade is to the Operations and Maintenance rating system, released March 26, 2018. The updates will significantly streamline certification and put a greater focus on performance outcomes, allowing annual verification to be integrated into normal operations.
