Hi all LEEDUsers,

For one of our projects, we would like to pursue this v4.1 credit by purchasing Energy Attribute Certificates (EACs) or carbon offsets. In the credit requirements, it is not clear for how long we have to purchase carbon offsets to meet or offset annual building greenhouse gas emissions.

The credit states that "All off-site qualifying resources must be contracted, owned, or leased for at least 10 years or the remainder of the tenant lease term" but it does not say anything about EACs or Carbon Offsets contracts.

Do you have any suggestion about this?

Thank you!
