Hi I have a project that is going for dual certification. It has just been awarded a 3 Globe rating for Green Globes and looks to land strongly in the middle of LEED Silver. Do you think an innovation in design credit can be applied for for achieving an additional sustainable building certification on the building, or is it too much of a conflict of interest to fly?

Patricia, I don't think it would fly, but not because it's a conflict of interest. One of the policies with ID credits is that they must provide a quantifiable environmental benefit that is not already covered by other LEED credits. I think GBCI would question what the additional benefit is of the GG certification, that is not already addressed by the LEED credits you have earned.
