What is LEED?

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a green building rating system developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) specifically for buildings and facilities. Available for virtually all building, community and home project types, LEED provides a framework to create healthy, highly efficient and cost-saving green buildings. LEED certification is a globally recognized symbol of sustainability achievement.

LEED® was created to:

  • Establish a common standard of environmental performance.
  • Promote buildings and facilities that are environmentally responsible, economically profitable, and healthy, productive places to live and work.
  • Increase awareness of the benefits of a green building.
