Please begin by going to the U.S. Green Building Council’s online list of LEED Credits.

_ I stated conclusions I made from the exercise.
_ I cited sources for information or ideas not my own
LEED Version 4 Name Professorâ€™s Name Date Development is a vital part of our modern world, with projects being developed on a daily basis. In this endeavor, the environment is caught in between because most projects utilize environmental resources both renewable and non-renewable.
