LEED certification software expert aims to help general contractors comply with standards
SAVANNAH, Ga., March 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Green Badger, a premier cloud-based LEED certification software solution for the construction industry, has released a new guide to help general contractors earn credits for using sustainable and safe building products and materials.
The guide is meant to help project teams plan a strategy to earn two of the Building Product Disclosure and Optimization credits for LEED v4 and v4.1 – Environmental Product Declarations (EDP) and Material Ingredient Reporting (MIR). The credits are meant to encourage the selection and use of building materials and products that are safe, sustainable, and ethically produced.
“It can be frustrating to have to keep searching for eligible building products and materials to meet the LEED standards,” said Tommy Linstroth, founder and CEO of Green Badger. “Project teams want to do the right thing, but they don’t want to feel like they’re searching for a needle in a haystack to do it. We strive to be solution providers, so we created this guide to help.”
The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification, developed by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC), is the most widely-used green building rating system in the world.
“We firmly believe in our motto of ‘Sustainability Simplified,” Linstroth said. “We’re here to make it easier for anyone to achieve LEED certification on projects, which benefits all of us by encouraging the construction of healthy, energy efficient and safe buildings.”
