Postmortem: Are Rating Systems Really Working?

Sustainability rating systems tend to either draw frustration or excitement. Join us to review the historical context, focus areas, components and real-world examples of success, hindsight moments and challenges of three such rating systems, LEED, Passive House and Living Building Challenge. We’ll also discuss how rating systems intersect with New York City’s efficiency grades and carbon caps. Don’t just listen to this presentation: prepare for what might be heated dialogue and discussion!
