In Defense of LEED

You may have already heard, but there’s a lawsuit pending against the USGBC. The plaintiffs claim that they are “losing customers because USGBC’s false advertisements mislead the consumer into believing that obtaining LEED certification incorporates construction techniques that achieve energy-efficiency.” If you’re looking for an article that jumps on that train, you’re in the wrong place. I think this lawsuit is seriously misguided, and draws attention away from all of the positive consequences of the USGBC’s work.
