The Technical Advisory Groups (TAGs) are charged with providing a consistent source of technical advice to LEED committees and working groups with respect to credit and prerequisite improvement and supporting tool development; the TAGs ensure that the integrity of LEED is grounded on technical and scientific considerations of the highest quality. These committees also work on credit and prerequisite development based on their specific areas of expertise.
