Description

This week on Sustainability Now!, your host, Justin Mog, takes you on a deep dive into Louisville’s recent Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) for Cities certification at the Silver level from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). Two guests who were intimately involved in the data gathering and reporting join us to discuss the meaning and implications of this rating: Sumedha Rao, LEED AP, Sustainability Specialist, Office of Advanced Planning and Sustainability, Louisville Metro Government (http://louisvilleky.gov/sustainability); and David Abell, USGBC's LEED for Cities manager who happens to also be a Louisville native (https://www.usgbc.org/).

Louisville's new LEED for Cities Silver certification was just announced in December 2022. We discuss what it tells us about Louisville’s sustainability strengths and where we need to go from here. Learn in what areas Louisville scored well, and where we need to make improvements. We also get a comparative perspective from David about what have other cities done well that we can emulate in Louisville.
