Green building is about architectural and human performance and LEED v4 and other green programs can drive market transformation. This course demonstrates how LEED requirements are changing to increasingly emphasize materials and health, and how new credits with higher standards for health and performance are raising the bar for project teams and the sustainable buildings they design. Case studies where insulation products were used in green buildings will be discussed.
