The United States Green Building Council launched a beta version of LEED v4.1. The USGBC notes it is an “incremental update to the LEED rating system.”

LEED v4.1 allows projects to earn LEED points through buildings performance monitoring via the Arc platform. It will also deliver new methods for measuring building performance by working with and supporting projects that track energy, water, waste, transportation and indoor environmental quality. It also will have a data-driven path to LEED certification for existing buildings and updated referenced standards and requirements to ensure LEED remains the leader in green building.

To participate in the LEED v4.1 beta, register your project in LEED Online.
