Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) is an internationally recognized green building certification system that provides third-party verification that a building or community was designed and built using strategies intended to improve performance with energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction and improved indoor environmental quality. LEED was developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and is intended to provide building owners and operators’ framework for identifying and apply practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions.
LEED certification is issued after submitting an application meeting the requirements of the rating system as well as paying registration and certification fees. Certification is granted by the Green Building Certification Institute which is responsible for the third party verification of meeting the standards of LEED requirements.
