Green Advantage and the LEED® Innovation Credit

“… projects utilizing larger percentages of workers with the (Green Advantage) credential … are more likely to spot problems that would affect green building performance, identify cost cutting opportunities, and increase the prospects of attaining LEED certification at, or higher than, the level sought.”
