LEED Volume Certification Program Launched
The LEED Volume Program, launched at Greenbuild 2010, is designed for government, education, real estate organizations, retailers, and the hospitality industry. The fledgling program has already engaged eight organizations, according to USGBC. A pilot program launched in 2006 had 38 participants, including Best Buy, Marriott Hotels, and PNC Financial Services Group, and resulted in 350 LEED certifications. Participants can now use the LEED Volume Program for design and construction projects (such as LEED-NC), and it will be available for LEED for Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance (LEED-EBOM) in mid-2011, says USGBC.
