GSA Advised to Keep LEED

The Green Building Advisory Committee, set up to advise facilities management agency the General Services Administration, concluded by a 10-6 vote that LEED was the best standard to help the government comply with the Energy Independence and Security Act. The act requires federal agencies to use a green building certification system for new construction and major renovations. The GSA has required new buildings under its jurisdiction to be LEED Gold certified since 2010. There are more than 4,000 LEED-certified government projects, and another 8,000 pursuing certification, according to USGBC.
