LEED Certification

Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is an internationally recognized green building certification system. Through third-party verification, LEED ensures that a building or community was designed and built using strategies aimed at improving performance across the following impactful metrics:

  • Energy efficiency
  • Water efficiency
  • Co2 emissions reduction
  • Improved indoor environmental quality
  • Stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts.

LEED provides building owners and operators a concise framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions.
