Health in LEED

Human health is a longstanding value of the green building movement. Green buildings can promote health and well-being in the near term while preserving resources and protecting the environment for human benefit in the long term. By intentionally deploying green building strategies, like those available for use within LEED, the buildings industry can simultaneously promote health and well-being at a variety of population scales.

This research within this document aims to narrate the story of green buildings in light of the influence they can have in improving people’s lives and builds on previous assessment of LEED in Health, with a focus on LEED v4.1, the newest version of the rating systems.
