Sourcing of Raw Materials For LEED v4.1
GreenCE’s mission is to support the necessary transition to a sustainable built environment by empowering design professionals to address the environmental, economic, and social impacts of buildings. GreenCE’s course catalog includes LEED exam preparation, continuing education to maintain your AIA or LEED credential, as well as specialty education focused on topics such as ADA/Barrier-Free requirements. We are committed to designing the highest quality continuing education programs in the construction industry.
In this course, we explain how to achieve the LEED v4.1 BD+C and ID+C MR: Sourcing of Raw Materials credit and how to specify environmentally friendly building materials. We review FSC certification, recycled content, and how bio-based materials could change the future of construction.
- Explain how recycled content can contribute to the LEED v4.1 BD+C and ID+C MR: Sourcing of Raw Materials credit and help use less energy, water, and create less pollution
- Describe how to achieve the LEED v4.1 BD+C and ID+C MR: Sourcing of Raw Materials credit and create a more sustainable building for occupants
- Discuss how wood certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) can contribute to the LEED v4.1 BD+C and ID+C MR: Sourcing of Raw Materials credit and how it can promote environmentally sound management of the world's forests
- Review how bio-based materials may benefit the construction industry as well as potential challenges and trade-offs for design professionals and occupants
