LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification is a designation given to buildings that are verified to be resource efficient and environmentally friendly. Some factors that are used in determining LEED certification include water usage, energy use, greenhouse gas emission, design innovation, and more. In order to qualify, a building must comply with environmental laws and regulations and must have been occupied for a minimum of five years with energy and water use data available.
Ratings are given on a 100 point scale, with those earning at least 40 points qualifying for certification. Beyond this, higher levels of certification exist to represent a building’s superior design and efficiency. Silver certification is bestowed to those who earn 50 points, gold certification for those who earn 60 points, and platinum certification for those with 80 points or more.
LEED certification is the most widely used third-party verification credential for green buildings across the world. Business leaders around the world recognize LEED certification as a baseline for quality construction and a commitment to preserving our natural resources.
