Cabling and LEED: Where It All Comes Together


What Is This White Paper About?

Green buildings have a lot to live up to. They aim to decrease energy, water and material usage, as well as reduce negative impacts on people and the environment.

To provide a comparison and benchmark for green building performance, the U.S. Green Building Council unveiled its Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification in 1998. LEED v4 launched in late 2013, and is the most current version of LEED. The certification applies to all building types, from office buildings and hotels to warehouses and data centers.

Topics covered in the White Paper:

  • Overview
  • Cable’s Role in Green Buildings
  • How Cable Can Earn LEED Points
  • EPDs Explained
  • HPDs Explained
  • Product Lens Certification Explained
  • Going Beyond LEED
  • Belden Announces EPDs, HPDs and Product Lens Certifications

Download this white paper to learn how you can benefit from LEED on your next project!
