Here's why LEED v4 is better:
Includes a focus on materials that goes beyond how much is used to get a better understanding of what's in the materials we spec for our buildings and the effect those components have on human health and the environment
Takes a more performance-based approach to indoor environmental quality to ensure improved occupant comfort
Brings the benefits of smart grid thinking to the forefront with a credit that rewards projects for participating in demand response programs
Provides a clearer picture of water efficiency by evaluating total building water use
