Presinar: LEED and Human Health

October 16 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

GBCI: 0920018733


Every LEED project protects and improves the health of people across the globe via macro level strategies AND the health of occupants in the project via building level strategies. For example, improving energy efficiency in one building reduces pollutants in the air and greenhouse gas emissions across the globe, thereby helping global health. Water efficiency in one building helps protect water resources available globally. In addition, LEED incorporates strategies targeted at improving the health specifically of the occupants in the building by optimizing indoor air quality, material impacts, lighting, biophilia, sound, and other parameters. We recognize that all of our actions are connected and have an impact on health and quality of life, and LEED is designed to optimize our impacts. Attendees will come away from this session with a deeper understanding of how LEED affects our everyday lives and improves health and wellness.


Course Objectives:



  1. Identify the health and wellness impacts from LEED v4 Indoor Environmental Quality credits

  2. Recognize health impacts of LEED v4 Water credits

  3. Recognize health impacts of LEED v4 Location & Transportation credits
