Sammanfattning: Certification of buildings is now a big part of the construction industry. The role and importance of certifications is now undeniable. It has a positive impact on the environment, and in the meantime companies can label themselves as eco-friendly. Skanska is one of the biggest construction companies in Sweden. Lately LEED has become the most common certification system they use on larger commercial buildings. A new version has just been released, but how well has the system adapted to a Swedish market and environment, or vice versa? This can be difficult given that the certification system has been developed for an American market. In combination with the eventual problems given the system’s origin, working with LEED on the construction site is also a lot of work. Our Research indicates that approximately 20% of a project engineer’s time is taken up by work with the system. This thesis examines the possibilities of reducing the amount of time LEED takes up. U.S Green Building Council has released a fourth version of LEED. In order to streamline the work with certification, an updated tool has been made that explains the credit Sourcing of Raw Materials and focuses on the essential parts for people who work in construction. In order to do this the previous tool made by Skanska has been studied, along with interviews with employees of the company. USGBC’s LEED Reference Guide is the core of the information regarding the new version. The conclusion is that given the right tools, the work with LEED can be more efficient.
