Join Kentucky U.S. Green Building Council Education Committee Chair, Gary Hisel, LEED AP BD+C, for a session packed with information you'll want to know about LEED v4:
• A brief history of LEED v4

• Specific market sector improvements, including:
1. Market adaptations for data centers, warehouse and distribution centers, hospitality, EB (Existing Building) for schools, EB for retail, and homes/mid-rise
2. LEED ND (Neighborhood Development)
3. The simplified structure of EBOM - building components, site infrastructure, policies, performance actions and tracking
4. Residential improvements - continuous improvement, alignment of certification thresholds, mid-rise, mandatory water and energy metering, new energy performance, and simplified documentation for MR and EQ.
5. Improved environmental outcomes - global climate change, human health, biodiversity and ecosystem services, sustainable and regenerative material cycles, green economy, and community quality of life.

Local tilapia vs. large-scale Thai import fish
Marcona almond-crusted fish with spinach, morel mushrooms, crème fraîche and strawberry balsamic
Free-range local Cornish rock variety vs. large-scale produced indoor broiler chicken
