What is LEED Certification:


LEED- Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.


According to the United States Green Building Council, “The LEED plaque on a building is a mark of quality and achievement in green building”. There is currently 1.85 million square feet of construction space being LEED certified every day, according to the USGBC. “LEED certification provides independent verification of a building or neighborhood’s green features, allowing for the design, construction, operations and maintenance of resource-efficient, high-performing, healthy, cost-effective buildings. LEED is the triple bottom line in action, benefiting people, planet and profit.” (leed.usgbc.org) Also, according to the USGBC in the U.S. buildings account for 38% of all CO2 emissions, 13.6% of all potable water (15 trillion gal./year) and 73% of all electricity consumption.
