This Open Forum discussed the USGBC (U.S Green Building Council)’s LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) green building rating/certification program and more. Attendees came away with a general understanding of not only the programs and their goals, but the costs and benefits regarding construction, operating expense and marketing advantages of “Green” Buildings.
