    10. LEED Certification LEED Certification Levels 7

    11. LEED Prerequisites and Credits LEED Prerequisites and Credits Prerequisites Required Credits Optional Credit Weightings Each credit is allocated points based on the relative importance of the building-related impacts that it addresses. 7

    12. Carbon Overlay Carbon Overlay Wingspread Principles on a U.S. Response to Global Warming. Reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 60% to 80% below 1990 levels by midcentury. 7

    13. Carbon Overlay Carbon Overlay Score for Each Credit based on Carbon Footprint Building’s Carbon Footprint Total Green House Gas (GHG) Emissions associated with it construction and operation 7

    14. Carbon Overlay Greenhouse Gas • GHG Emissions Associated With: • Energy used by building systems • Building-related transportation • Embodied emissions of water (electricity used to extract, convey, treat, and deliver water) • Embodied emissions of solid waste (life-cycle emissions associated with solid waste) • Embodied emissions of materials (emissions associated with the manufacture and transport of materials) 7

    15. Carbon Overlay Greenhouse Gas 7

    16. Carbon Overlay Greenhouse Gas The Greenhouse Effect causes: Global Warming >>> Melting Glaciers >>> Rising Sea Level >>> Increased & Intensified Storms >>> 7

    17. Carbon Overlay Greenhouse Gas 7

    18. Carbon Overlay Greenhouse Asses 7

    19. Energy Use in Buildings Carbon Overlay CBECS Commercial Building Energy Consumption Survey 7

    20. LEED Certification Process LEED Certification Process A project must satisfy three requirements for certification: Meet the Minimum Program Requirements Satisfy all Prerequisites Satisfy a combination of credits that achieve a certain number of points for the desired certification level. 7

    21. LEED Certification Process LEED Certification Process Register Register the Project and Pay Registration Fee – should be done early (pre-design phase) Projects are registered online at www.gbci.org 7

    22. LEED ONLINE LEED Certification Process LEED Online Web Based Tool Used to Manage the LEED Project Certification Team Administrator Project Team Members 7

    23. LEED Certification Process LEED Certification Process 2. Application Submit all documentation for Design Credits and Construction Credits to be reviewed by USGBC and pay certification fee. Certification Fee is based on: Membership Project Square Footage 7

    24. LEED Certification Process LEED Certification Process OR 2. Application Split Review (Two-Phase) Submit Design Credits for review by USGBC before completion and apply for construction-related credits after the project finishes and the remaining fee. 7

    25. LEED Certification Process LEED Certification Process LEED Rating Systems that follow a different process: LEED for Homes multistep process. Involves: LEED for Homes provider Homebuilder Green Rater Home Energy Rater 7

    26. LEED Certification Process LEED Certification Process LEED for Neighborhood Development LEED for Neighborhood Development follows the typical neighborhood development process— which can take years or even decades. 7

    27. CIRs Project Credit Interpretation Rulings Credit Interpretation Requests (CIR) and Rulings Web Based – LEED Online Project team members can find technical and administrative guidance on how LEED credits apply to their projects and search existing credit interpretation rulings. 7

    28. CIRs Have a Green Day! 7
