LEED® credit could pose challenges for the roofing industry

The Center for Environmental Innovation in Roofing actively has been involved in the public comment period for LEED 2012, which is the next version of the LEED Green Building Rating System.

Although the center has commented on numerous credits within the various public drafts of LEED 2012, one new credit, “Avoidance of Chemicals of Concern,” poses unusual challenges for the center’s members, the roofing industry, building designers and building owners.

The center has released a document describing the LEED 2012 credit and explaining the roofing industry’s concerns. To view the document, click here.
