Green Building Commission Responds to Appeals from Vote Approving LEED V4

As part of the LEED development process, any party may submit an appeal to USGBC. Following the overwhelmingly positive vote for LEED v4 by our membership, we did receive appeals that we are currently responding to through USGBC’s Executive Committee and its Board of Directors. Our appeals process is outlined in the LEED Foundations document. We are working closely with the appellants to evolve an action plan that all parties are comfortable with. The appeals process has always been an important part of our efforts to be open, transparent and consensus-based and is an important part of the LEED development process. Coupled with our public comment process, these appeals help us review our process from all angles, and evolve it so that we can continue to develop the best possible global green building rating system available.
