In the LEED

There are a number of flavors of LEED certification: new construction, existing buildings, commercial interiors, core and shell, retail, schools, health care and homes. All of these will be collectively updated in January 2009 under the LEED 2009 banner.

However, the existing building certification standard has just been updated on its own to LEED for Existing Buildings version 2.0. The new version offers more flexibility for those seeking LEED credits. Greener Buildings has a good wrap-up on what it all means.
