LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is a third-party building performance measurement system from the US Green Building Council that provides building owners and operators with a framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions.
LEED certification provides independent, third-party verification that a building, home or community was designed and built using strategies aimed at achieving high performance in key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality. The LEED process involves quantifying all of the sustainable design attributes of a project, modeling the proposed energy and water consumption, and commissioning the buildings upon completion to verify delivery of a high-performance system for reduced environmental impacts.
Categories of LEED Certification:
LEED for New Construction*
LEED for Core and Shell*
LEED for Commercial Interiors*
LEED for Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance**
LEED for Homes**
