Canadian projects in the LEED Neighbourhood Pilot Program

More than 238 developments, including 21 Canadian projects, will join a pilot program to help the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) test the practicality of its national certification system for sustainable neighborhood design.

The pilot program will launch around the world with devlopments that will seek LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) for Neighborhood Development certification to see whether it is effective and practical in its application.

The LEED for Neighborhood Development Rating System integrates the principles of smart growth, urbanism, and green building into the first national standard for neighborhood design. LEED for Neighborhood Development is a collaboration between the U.S. Green Building Council, the Congress for the New Urbanism, and the Natural Resources Defense Council.

The complete list of developments included in the Pilot Program is on the USGC website. RENX identified twenty one Canadian pilot projects on the USGBC LEED Neighbourhood Pilot Program list(see below). RENX has provided links to Canadian project websites and will updated and expand on this information on an ongoing basis in the RENX Green Building Newsletter.
