Similar to the LEED Innovation and Design Credits, the RELi Applied Creativity credits were created with the intent of providing projects and designers the opportunity to be awarded points for exceptional performance.
AC Credits are awarded for creative thinking and innovative techniques. For example, AC credits for are awarded for comprehensive strategies which demonstrate quantifiable environmental benefits. A representative list of possible AC credit topics is found below. RELi AC Credits are evaluated for each project. It is important to note that the award of an AC Credit for one project at a specific point in time does not constitute automatic approval for a similar strategy in a future project. Applied Creativity credits are not awarded for the use of a particular product or design strategy if the technology aids in the achievement of an existing RELi credit.
AC Credits must be preapproved by the RELi Certification Team. This process includes identifying the proposed innovation credit intent, the proposed requirement(s) for compliance, the proposed submittal(s) to demonstrate compliance, and a summary of potential design approaches that may be used to meet the requirements.
