Owens Corning LEED 2009 Credits Guide HELPING YOU ACHIEVE LEED CERTIFICATIONS Prerequisites and Credits in the LEED 2009 Green Building Rating System Address Seven Topics in addition to Pilot Credits: Sustainable Sites (SS) Water Efficiency (WE) Energy & Atmosphere (EA) Materials & Resources (MR) Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) Innovation & Design Process (ID) Regional Priority (RP) Pilot Credits (PC) Prerequisites and Credits for each of the Seven Topics covered in the LEED Rating System products,for each building type are project rather than product focused. Therefore it is the cumulative effect of products integrated within building systems and assemblies and evaluated within the parameters of each of the topics, that contribute to the "points" a project accrues during the certification process. In 2009, the USGBC introduced LEED v3, which is made up of three parts: LEED 2009 (advancements to the LEED Rating Systems), a new LEED Online, and a new building certification model. The LEED 2009 Green Building Rating System is a set of performance standards for certifying the design and construction of commercial, institutional and high- rise multifamily residential buildings, both public and private. The intent is to promote durable, affordable and sustainable materials and processes during the design and construction of the built environment. The Rating System includes products for New Construction & Major Renovations, Core & Shell Development, Existing Buildings, Operations & Maintenance, Schools and Commercial Interiors. The LEED Pilot Credit Library is a rating system development tool designed to encourage testing of new and revised LEED credit language, alternative compliance paths, and new or innovative green building technologies and concepts. Project teams that are interested in participating in the pilot test of a credit are required to register for Pilot Credit and submit feedback and documentation.
