Honeywell and the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) today announced they are working together to deepen facility sustainability by integrating USGBC’s new LEED® Dynamic Plaque™, a near-real-time monitoring tool with integrated building automation technology from Honeywell to measure and provide performance feedback to help optimize operations.
The LEED Dynamic Plaque assesses facility performance in the categories of energy use, water consumption, waste output, occupant transportation and human experience, aggregating data to provide an overall performance score that reflects the LEED rating system — the world’s most widely utilized green building rating system and recognized standard for leadership in sustainability. The plaque is an appealing, easy-to understand display ideal for mounting in a prominent location so tenants and guests can view and better understand the building’s ongoing rating. It also features an app for anywhere access, helping further incentivize occupants to engage in actions that can positively impact sustainability.
By integrating with Honeywell technology, the plaque automatically receives information from core building systems that contribute to a facility’s LEED performance score, in addition to input from occupant surveys and waste tracking information. The score updates as data feeds in and can raise awareness of likely issues — and potential fixes — that could affect operations.
