The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) has proposed revisions to LEED for Existing Buildings Version 5 (LEED-EB:O+M V5), which if left unchanged, would be a major setback to the professional cleaning industry. For more than two decades, LEED has defined the standards for a comprehensive green cleaning program, even for facilities that are not LEED certified. If we do not act, the problematic changes that are proposed likely will not be revised for another five years.

Learn from industry experts and LEED-EB:O+M committee members about our concerns in the proposed Version 5 and how to respond to the USGBC’s call for comments in this FREE one-hour webinar. This webinar is for anyone in the global cleaning industry including manufacturers, product distributors, service providers and others.

Topics Include:
  • Learn about the US Green Building Council plus what the LEED standards are, their impact on the cleaning industry, and why you should care
  • Learn what is contained in Version 5 and how this adversely affects the cleaning industry
  • Learn how to submit comments along with draft language to make it easy to comment
  • Learn how Version 5 would eliminate the cleaning prerequisite which removes basic requirements for management systems, training, and certifications for cleaning services
  • Learn how Version 5 undervalues cleaning as compared to other issues and how this affects our entire industry
  • Learn specifically how Version 5 can be improved to properly address safety and worker well-being for our frontline workers
  • Learn how to communicate these issues with others and how to get the word out.

Attendees can engage with our panelists during the webinar and during a dedicated Q&A session.
