LEED™ - Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design

The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED™) is a third party certification program and an internationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings. It provides building owners and operators the needed tools to indentify and implement practical measures on the buildings performance.

Green Building Council members, representing every sector of the building industry, developed and continue to refine LEED™. The rating systems address eight major areas:
  • Location and Planning
  • Sustainable Sites
  • Water Efficiency
  • Energy and Atmosphere
  • Materials and Resources
  • Indoor Environmental Quality
  • Innovation and Design Process
  • Regional Priority
The goal of most stakeholders using LEED™ as a building-rating tool is to achieve LEED™ certification. Certification is the process by which a project team fulfills the prerequisites and sufficient credit points in four possible levels: Certified, Sliver, Gold or Platinum. LEED™ is flexible enough to accommodate a wide range of green building strategies that best fit the goals of particular projects.
