Will the new LEEDv4 help USGBC rebound from declining use of LEED? Not likely, according to this analysis, which found that In its first three years on the market, LEEDv4 was used in fewer than 5% of new project registrations.

LEED projects in commercial interiors and retail stores showed gains in 2016, but these are small to very small projects that can't offset the declines in much larger projects in offices, healthcare and education.

LEED new construction US certifications in 2016 were 21% below 2015 levels and about 33% below 2013 levels. Progress or regress?

The truth behind LEED's PR ad from last week is something quite different than what the US Green Building Council says, in these very expensive ads running in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and Washington Post. Of course, in the new political climate anyone can claim anything with very little in the way of response. But I do think some of the claims are so preposterous that they warrant a little response. What do you think?

Certifications of existing buildings in 2016 by the LEED program amount to only about 1 in 10,000 US nonresidential buildings. At this rate, we'll never get close to the carbon reduction goals of programs such as the 2030 Challenge.
