Aligning Sustainability Plans with LEED for Cities and Communities

This worksheet was developed to support local government leaders -- elected and appointed officials, planners, sustainability directors, data analysts and managers responsible for developing, adopting and implementing plans.
LEED version: v4.1

Local governments continually make decisions, expenditures, and investments that affect community sustainability. The strength of local decision making is informed by community input, public planning efforts, and internal coordination across departments and agencies. Effective practices and processes are therefore critical to ensure that local decisions lead to sustainable outcomes and do not unfairly burden particular constituencies. This tool supports alignment efforts with master plans, sustainability plans, climate action plans and other local plans that take a triple bottom line approach to sustainability.
