USGBC’s Big South communities present how RELi measures resilience in buildings, cities and communities and expands upon LEED to embrace resilience strategies that are climate adaptive. RELi’s comprehensive approach lays the groundwork for resilient, regenerative and healthy outcomes that support quality of life.

Around the world, governments, businesses, private developers and city planners and officials are spearheading a growing movement to make structures and communities more resilient through improved preventative action. The increasing frequency of dramatic weather events has brought an even greater urgency to create buildings and communities that are better adapted to a changing climate and better able to bounce back from disturbances and interruptions.

RELi is a rating system and leadership standard that takes a holistic approach to resilient design. It is used by companies, developers, city planners, architects, bond insurers and more to assess and plan for all of the acute hazards that buildings and communities can face during unplanned events, prepare to mitigate against these hazards and design and construct buildings to maintain critical life-saving services in the event of extended loss of power, heating fuel or water
