Walls & Ceilings’ sister publication Environmental Design + Construction has been named the U.S. Green Building Council “The Official Magazine for the LEED Professional.” This news has developed from a 15-year partnership between the magazine and USGBC. EDC will now be available for free to all 96,000-plus LEED APs with specialty and LEED Green Associates.

“The U.S. Green Building Council’s partnership with EDC will help us provide quality content and education to our network of LEED APs and LEED Green Associates,” said Taryn Holowka, vice president of marketing and communications, USGBC. “We look forward to working closely with EDC on this new endeavor and the promising opportunities it will bring to the LEED Professional community.”

The goal of the new partnership is to provide relevant information and education to help advance USGBC’s mission and to help LEED Professionals to succeed in the design, construction, remodeling, operations and maintenance of the sustainable built environment. With this development, EDC will be providing even more content to assist the LEED professional, including columns from LEED Fellows, international LEED project features, rating system updates and credentialing maintenance opportunities, including monthly continuing education articles.

“The LEED professional is the cornerstone of a sustainable built environment. LEED Professionals with specialty, as well as LEED Green Associates and the LEED Fellows, are involved in all aspects of the project, from the charettes, design, specifications and construction, to continued building operations and maintenance,” said the magazine’s Publisher Diana Brown.

A redesign of the publication to reflect this new agreement will be unveiled in May. To learn more or subscribe to the magazine, visitwww.EDCmag.com/LEED.
