LEED is Setting the Standard

February 1, 2010 at 10:49 am Leave a comment

I had the privilege yesterday to work with the owner of GBL Geothermal, Matt Miller, to set up an online presence for his business. Mr. Miller is LEED AP accredited for new construction, and moving forward with a phenomenal business model that I believe will improve the world for future generations.

My last post discussed the opinion of Auden Schendler presented in his book, Getting Green Done, on the LEED certification program. Auden voiced concerns about the LEED certification system because there is the possibility that a building may achieve the certification without actually reducing consumption and emissions.

Mr. Miller feels that the current LEED certification system compensates for the shortfalls that existed in LEED 1.0. LEED is a program that is constantly changing and adapting to the business environment. As with any system there are problems, but LEED will continue to set the standard for minimum energy efficiency requirements in new and existing structures.
