Part two of the series, “Materials and Resource Credits — Uncharted Waters,” will be held Oct. 17, at 2 p.m. EST. Jim Mellentine, LCA manager at Sustainable Solutions Corp.; and Annie Bevan, certification analyst for GreenCircle Certified LLC, will present.
According to Sustainable Solutions Corp., the most substantially revised section of the new LEED rating system compared to previous iterations is the Materials and Resources (MR) section. This webinar will help to answer vital questions. For manufacturers, it will help to determine how products can contribute to earning MR credits on LEED projects. It will also seek to help LEED or industry professionals learn how to navigate the new language and select materials to earn MR credits. This webinar will look to answer questions pertaining to whole building impact reduction, product disclosure and optimization, material ingredient disclosure, and construction and demolition waste management.
