The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) has opened registration for the latest editions to its LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) green building program, LEED v4.1.

The council is now accepting applicants from both new construction projects as well as interior spaces with LEED v4.1 BD+C and LEED v4.1 ID+C. According to the USGBC, there are currently more than 96,200 commercial projects participating in its LEED program in 167 countries worldwide.

“The hallmark of LEED is ‘continuous improvement’ – and that is exactly where we are going with LEED v4.1,” said Mahesh Ramanujam, president and CEO of USGBC. “LEED v4.1 is set to raise the bar. It is the most comprehensive, collaborative, accessible and effective LEED system to date. From improving energy performance to emphasizing human health and integrative building design, LEED is encouraging project teams to operate beyond the status quo.”
