Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) is transforming the built environment, resulting in projects that meet the highest green standards for energy and water efficiency, environmentally friendly building materials, and healthy communities. LEED initially focused on the constructed environment, but through a rigorous planning and review process, the Sustainable Site Initiative will be integrated into the LEED system to expand into the landscape. Soon, projects without structures, such as gardens, parks, and plazas, will also be eligible for certification. This talk covers the history and integration of the two programs, the requirements for each, and the anticipated outcomes.
The talk will be led by Jane L. Didona, ASLA, RLA, who founded Didona Associates-Landscape Architects in 1989. She has created many landscapes that utilize a sustainable tool box and has been the landscape architect on three LEED-certified projects. She has written and lectured on sustainable site design, low impact development, stormwater management planning, and LEED in the landscape for more than 15 years.
