I have a bit of a tricky situation when considering ongoing purchases. The project is a manufacturing facility out of US. The certification is only for one building with manufacturing process. So the employee meals are prepared using local sourced food. However the canteen is in a different building which we don't take into LEED boundary. Also there are other buildings out of LEED boundary but in the site with occupants that use the same canteen meals.
My first question is, is it possible to consider local sourced food as the project is not a hospitality project?
Second if it is possible under above circumstances, how should I take the compliant % for the certifying building?
Thanks in advance.
