LEED V4 Shifts Emphasis of Environmentally-Friendly Construction Material to Wood

September 3, 2014

A report published this month by Dovetail Partners analyzes how LEED V4 emphasizes wood as the most environmentally-friendly construction material and will bring increased incorporation of green building concepts into buildings of all kinds. Buildings constructed in the future will be significantly more energy efficient than today and more attention will be given to minimizing environmental impacts wherever possible using science-based tools to identify lowest impact alternatives. In this environment, wood products can become the building materials of choice.
