US Green Building Council Launches Global Economic Recovery Strategy

June 3, 2020 EcoVadis ‏‏‎


US Green Building Council (USGBC) announced a new strategy intended to leverage LEED — and the communities implementing the rating system — to support buildings and neighborhoods in a post-pandemic world.

The strategy, published as “Healthy People in Healthy Places Equals a Healthy Economy,” promotes the idea that prioritizing the health of people, communities, and the planet is the fastest way to rebuild a healthier, more sustainable economy. USGBC is launching emergency guidance and upgrades to the LEED green building program to ensure that it reflects the realities that buildings, and more importantly, the people inside them, will face in the near future.
