Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)
LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is the most widely used green building rating system in the world. Available for virtually all building types, LEED provides a framework for healthy, highly efficient, and cost-saving green buildings. LEED certification is a globally recognized symbol of sustainability achievement and leadership.The LEED plaque stands for leadership, and demonstrates that a building has been designed, built and is operating as intended. Being “built to LEED” or “LEED equivalency” doesn’t exist—there is no substitute for LEED certification.
LEED can help both new and existing buildings to implement sustainable and greener strategies to become high performing buildings.
