Have you heard about the #leed dynyamic plaque? We've got the scoop!

For skeptics of sustainable design who point to energy-intensive, LEED-certified projects such as Bank of America building , in New York, and to studies debating the performance of allegedly green buildings, LEED Dynamic Plaque may help shed light on what happens after the etched glass certification plaques are shipped. The plaque also represents the direction the USGBC thinks green building is heading, and will streamline the current process of recertifying buildings through the Green Building Certification Institute, the USGBC’s third-party reviewer. “The plan over the next few years is to make LEED completely a recertification program,” Horst says. “That means that every building is an existing building … and every existing building re-certifies because buildings are alive.”
