How to Use GreenScreen® for LEED v4
The new How-To guide provides step-by-step instructions to help industry professionals create a Manufacturer’s Inventory, obtain and use the GreenScreen List Translator and/or Benchmark scores, and also provides a pathway to obtain a certification mark to help building industry professionals easily recognize products that can be used to earn these credits.
To help improve opportunities for disclosure and optimization throughout the building materials ecosystem, Clean Production Action has released its “How To” guide(link) for using GreenScreen to earn points for the LEED v4 Material Ingredient Disclosure and Optimization credits.
Since the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) released LEED v4 in 2013, there has been a steep learning curve for both manufacturers and LEED Practitioners who are scrambling to keep current with the rating system and its approach to inherently safer materials through the new Material Ingredient Disclosure and Optimization credits. Both of these credits lean heavily on GreenScreen and GreenScreen List Translator.
