LEED Certification

leedLEED® stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. LEED certification is recognized around the world as the premier benchmark of achievement for the design, construction and operation of high-performing green buildings.

It provides third-party verification that a building or community is designed and built using strategies aimed at improving performance across the following metrics: energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts.

LEED-certified buildings save money and resources and have a positive impact on the health of occupants, while promoting renewable, clean energy.
