Heavy-hitting lobby groups look beyond LEED with new coalition

Several of the most powerful business groups in Washington, D.C., announced yesterday that they are teaming up to advocate on green buildings, giving a shared voice to chemical companies and other manufacturers that are working to thwart an update to the popular Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, or LEED, rating system. The new American High-Performance Buildings Coalition includes the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the National Association of Manufacturers, the American Chemistry Council and smaller trade groups for manufacturers of building products.
