This publication is divided into two primary sections: Part 1—The Basics of LEED and Part 2—The Big Picture. A normal layout for a report might start with the big picture to set the stage and then dive into the details of the report. The stage referred to in this report addresses the need for the construction industry to improve its use of resources to lessen its impact on the production of carbon dioxide. If you are not already a believer in this need, this publication will not, by itself, convince you to change your position. It will tell you what the rest of the construction industry—owners, legislators, building officials, contractors and users are doing to make a difference. Since the purpose of this report is not to change your mind about carbon footprints, The Big Picture section is part 2, and what you need to know as you operate in the construction industry in put in part 1. So part 1 explains how the Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) program relates to the wall and ceiling industry. Part 2 tells you why we need LEED. The PDF file will be eMailed to you within 1-2 business days after placing your order. AWCI Members can download for Free in the Members Only section of the website.
