LEED - Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design
LEED, or Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design, is a green building certification program that recognizes best-in-class building strategies
and practices. To receive LEED certification, building projects satisfy prerequisites and earn points to achieve different levels of certification.
Prerequisites and credits differ for each rating system, and teams choose the best fit for their project.
Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council
(USGBC), LEED provides building owners and operators a concise framework for identifying and implementing
practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions.
