LEED® Certification Services
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™
Improve your property portfolio with high performance practices.
One program designed to promote environmental responsibility through better resource management is the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program. This rating system has been developed by U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and is maintained by active memberships, committees, and individual participants.
LEED was created to help encourage and promote awareness of green building practices and activities, and it is the nationally accepted benchmark for creating, constructing and operating high performance green buildings. LEED provides building owners and operators the tools they need to make immediate and measurable impacts on their buildings’ performance.
The LEED program promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five key areas:
- Sustainable Site Development
- Water Savings
- Energy and Atmosphere
- Materials Selection
- Indoor Environmental Quality
Why is LEED so important?
Consider the facts. Buildings in the United States consume one-third of our total energy, two-thirds of our electricity, one-eighth of our water, and transform land that contains valuable ecological resources. In order to protect our nation’s resource supply, we need to come together as a group and make some serious changes. The LEED program was designed to do just that for a variety of commercial facilities.
