Social Equity and LEED

Custom-built support for LEEDuser members

LEEDuser tip sheets, written by our team of LEED experts, fill gaps in knowledge we’ve observed between the LEED Reference Guide, LEED Online, and LEED Interpretations. We update them regularly so that our members get the most relevant guidance for current issues on their projects.

You’ve probably been hearing more about equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) in your firm—and for good reason. The building professions just aren’t up to the standards of the 21st century. (See more on our sister site, BuildingGreen.com.)

What you may not know is that LEED has begun addressing EDI in a variety of ways, including credits, pilot credits, and a separate checklist for projects. These features cover equity issues for the project team, the surrounding community, and even the product supply chain.
