  • Description: The latest version of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) standards, soon-to-be-launched LEED v4, will once again push all those in the building and construction (B&C) industry out of the comfort zones they were used to with LEED 2009 and into a new dimension of transparent, energy-efficient, and environmentally-responsible buildings. Previous versions of LEED standards tried to create buildings that were less damaging to the environment than their predecessors, whereas the latest version hopes to shift the bar closer to a net-zero impact building. This article presents what materials suppliers and the aluminum industry need to know about changes that could affect their industry.
