LEED Green Building Rating System

 

LEED certification provides independent, third-party verification that a building project meets the highest green building and performance measures. All certified projects receive a LEED plaque, which is the nationally recognized symbol demonstrating that a building is environmentally responsible, profitable and a healthy place to live and work.

There are both environmental and financial benefits to earning LEED certification.

LEED-certified buildings:

  • Lower operating costs and increased asset value.

  • Reduce waste sent to landfills.

  • Conserve energy and water.

  • Healthier and safer for occupants.

  • Reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions.

  • Qualify for tax rebates, zoning allowances and other incentives in hundreds of cities.

  • Demonstrate an owner's commitment to environmental stewardship and social responsibility.

The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System encourages and accelerates adoption of sustainable green building and development practices through the creation and implementation of universally understood and accepted tools and performance criteria.

LEED Green Building Rating System

What is LEED?

The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System is a nationally accepted certification program for the design, construction, and operation of green buildings. LEED promotes a whole-building approach to energy conservation and sustainability by focusing on key performance areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, and indoor environmental quality.

For a building to be LEED certificated, the design and construction must meet certain criteria following a LEED Rating System. Many federal, state and local government buildings have made LEED the green building standard of choice for new construction contracts.

How can your project become LEED certified?

First, your project must register with LEED. To earn certification, a building project must meet certain prerequisites and performance benchmarks ("credits") within each defined category. There are various levels of certification based on the number of credits the project can achieve. Those levels include Certified, Silver, Gold, or Platinum.

Are there limits as to who can participate in LEED?

No. Anyone can participate such as architects, real estate professionals, facility managers, engineers, interior designers, landscape architects, construction managers, lenders, government officials...
