USGBC Extends Current LEED Until October 2016

Washington, DC, Oct. 29, 2014 — The U.S. Green Building Council said it will allow LEED users to register projects under the LEED 2009 rating system until Oct. 31, 2016.

The original date for LEED 2009 registration to close was June 15, 2015. Extending to October 2016 gives LEED users and members of the green building industry additional time to prepare for LEED v4, the latest version of LEED, which is more rigorous and contains updates.

“When USGBC launched LEED v4 last year, we set out with one goal in mind – to raise the bar in a way that challenges the building industry to reach higher than ever before. This is our nature and USGBC and its members’ collective mission,” said CEO Rick Fedrizzi.

“However, the market has requested additional time to prepare for LEED v4, so we are responding.”
