  • The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), founded in 1993, is a non-profit trade organization that promotes sustainability in how buildings are designed, built and operated. The USGBC is best known for the development of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system and Greenbuild, a green building conference that promotes the green building industry, including environmentally responsible materials, sustainable architecture techniques and public policy.USGBC has more than 15,000 member organizations from every sector of the building industry and works to promote buildings that are environmentally responsible, profitable and healthy places to live and work. To achieve this it has developed a variety of programs and services, and works closely with key industry and research organizations and federal, state and local government agencies.
  • LEED began its development in 1994 spearheaded by Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) senior scientist Robert K. Watson who, as founding chairman of the LEED Steering Committee until 2006, led a broad-based consensus process which included non-profit organizations, government agencies, architects, engineers, developers, builders, product manufacturers and other industry leaders.
  • Transcript

    • 1. Sustainability and the LEED Rating System<br />
    • 2. What is Sustainability?<br />maintain  support  endure<br />a means of configuring civilization and human activity so that society, its members and its economies are able to meet their needs and express their greatest potential in the present, while preserving biodiversity and natural ecosystems, planning and acting for the ability to maintain these ideals in the very long term<br />Source: wiktionary.com<br />
    • 3. What is Sustainability?<br />Sustainability has MANY diverse and universally accepted definitions<br />There is not ONE definition that clearly characterizes the term:<br />SUSTAINABILITY<br />
    • 4. Structure of Sustainability<br />sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs<br /> Brundtland Commission of the United Nations, 1987<br />Requires the reconciliation of the three “pillars” of sustainability<br />Environmental<br />Social<br />Economic <br />
    • 5. Structure of Sustainability<br />1st Pillar: Environmental<br />Healthy ecosystems provide vital goods and services to humans and other organisms. There are two major ways of reducing negative human impact and enhancing ecosystem services:<br />Environmental Management<br />direct approach based largely on information gained from earth science, environmental science and conservation biology<br />Management of Human Consumption<br />indirect approach based largely on information gained from economics<br />
    • 6. Structure of Sustainability<br />1st Pillar: Environmental <br />Environmental Management<br />Oceans<br />Freshwater systems<br />Atmosphere<br />Forests<br />Land<br />Cultivated Land (Agriculture)<br />Biological Invasions<br />Lecture Notes expand on each of these points. <br />
    • 7. Structure of Sustainability<br />1st Pillar: Environmental<br />Healthy ecosystems provide vital goods and services to humans and other organisms. There are two major ways of reducing negative human impact and enhancing ecosystem services:<br />Environmental Management<br />direct approach based largely on information gained from earth science, environmental science and conservation biology<br />Management of Human Consumption<br />indirect approach based largely on information gained from economics<br />
    • 8. 1st Pillar: Environmental <br />Management of Human Consumption<br />Energy <br />Water<br />Food<br />Materials<br />Toxic Substances <br />Waste<br />Structure of Sustainability<br />Lecture Notes expand on each of these points. <br />
    • 9. Transition into a Sustainable means of Living<br />The human race has the capacity to consume more than resources can sustain, but….<br />Also has the capacity to reverse the effects of unsustainable lifestyles.<br />The United Nations has stated, in the Millennium Declaration, that &quot;current unsustainable patterns of production and consumption must be changed“<br />Available information and scientific evidence is varied to produce the necessary social change<br />Change that moves people out of their comfort level, and systemically resistant to necessary change<br />However, this change MUST happen in order to preserve our way of life. <br />
    • 10. The Facts<br />Buildings represent 38.9% of US primary energy use.<br />Buildings are one of the heaviest consumers of natural resources and account for a significant portion of the greenhouse gas emissions that effect climate change. <br />In the US, buildings account for 38% of all CO2 emissions.<br />Buildings represent 72% of US consumption. <br />Use 13.6% of all potable water, or 15 trillion gallons per year. <br />Use 40% of raw materials globally (3 billion tons annually).<br />Source: wikipedia.org<br />
    • 11. The Facts<br />EPA estimates that 136 million tons of building related construction and demolition debris was generated in the US in a single year. <br />Compare that to 254 million tons of municipal solid waste generated in the same year. <br />The three largest segments for non-residential green building construction - office, education and healthcare will account for more than 80% of total non-residential construction<br />Source: wikipedia.org<br />
    • 12. Opinion<br />If video is not available, refer to ANGEL website under RESOURCES in Module #2<br />Building green is a very politically-charged topic.<br />The DesignVote08 team recently completed a &quot;Man on the Street,&quot; interview-style video narrated by DesignVote08 National Chair Mickey Jacob, AIA. In the video, voters were asked questions about how the country can save energy and reduce carbon emissions. <br />Source: www.youtube.com<br />
    • 13. How the Design and Building Community is Contributing <br />Understanding of the structure of matter and the material world<br />Laws of thermodynamics, which all matter obeys regardless of size and context<br />Thinking about the way matter works contributes to the understanding of how things are built<br />Nature’s conscious representatives<br />We are not separate from nature, and cannot consciously part ourselves from it<br />Humans, as the only species conscious of our actions on our environments, MUST behave in a way the preserves the natural resources for future generations<br />
    • 14. How the Design and Building Community is Contributing <br />Imposing Generative versus Degenerative Design<br />Generative: having the power to produce or originate <br />In the built environment, everything is treated as a resource, and the end-life of all products and byproducts are valued as such<br />They are designed to be used in a new way<br />Degenerative: something that is designed to have one life, and at the end of its life, it is disposed. <br />Designers/Architects are taking generative design that occurs naturally and incorporating it into the built environment producing projects that live within their means of water and energy use.<br />
    • 15. How the Design and Building Community is Contributing <br />Incorporation of Whole Systems Thinking<br />Redirected away from thinking from parts of design and construction are unconnected, creates problems<br />Conventional building process is financially and environmentally costly<br />Whole systems approach involves asking as many questions upfront <br />What are the natural ecosystems present?<br />How can the building contribute and benefit those ecosystems?<br />What was the carbon footprint of the land before development?<br />What existed on the land? What flourished and why?<br />How much water did the land absorb?<br />How much sun and CO2 was absorbed? Oxygen generated?<br />How can we ensure that the structure will live within its water and energy means?<br />
    • 16. How the Design and Building Community is Contributing <br />Team collaboration as sustainability in action<br />All team members think in sustainable terms in regards to design, integration, construction and implementation<br />Characteristics of individuals within the team:<br />Think in terms of whole systems<br />Good listeners, deeply and openly<br />Aspiration<br />Personal mastery <br />Ability to understand complexity<br />Have reflective conversations using both mental models and dialogue<br />

    • 25. Sustainable Design and Construction <br />To answer the growing need to govern sustainable design and construction methodology & practices, a group was formed to spearhead a grassroots movement<br />United States Green Building Council <br />Founded in 1993<br />Non-profit trade organization<br />Main initiative: promotion of sustainability in how buildings are designed, constructed and operated. <br />promotes buildings that are environmentally responsible, profitable and healthy places to live and work.<br />Educates building professionals on different elements of the green building industry, at all levels. <br />
    • 26. The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC)is a Washington, D.C.-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to a prosperous and sustainable future for our nation through cost-efficient and energy-saving green buildings. USGBC works toward its mission of market transformation through its LEED green building certification program, robust educational offerings, a nationwide network of chapters and affiliates, the annual Greenbuild International Conference & Expo, and advocacy in support of public policy that encourages and enables green buildings and communities.<br />Source: www.usgbc.org<br />
    • 27. Sustainable Design and Construction <br /><ul><li>USGBC developed and maintains two areas of concentration within the green building industry</li></ul>Buildings<br />The LEED® green building certification program is a voluntary, consensus-based national rating system for buildings designed, constructed and operated for improved environmental and human health performance. LEED addresses all building types and emphasizes state-of-the-art strategies in five areas: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials and resources selection, and indoor environmental quality.<br />Professionals<br />LEED Professional Credentials (LEED AP and Green Associate) recognize professionals who have demonstrated a thorough understanding of green building techniques, the LEED green building rating systems, and the certification process. The LEED Professional Credentials program is administered by the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI), which was established with the support of USGBC to allow for objective, balanced management of the credential program.<br />Source: www.usgbc.org<br />
    • 28.
