LEED™ is an internationally recognized green building program.
It provides building owners and operators with a framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions.
What is LEED?
LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a voluntary, consensus-based, market¬-driven program that provides third-party verification of green buildings. From individual buildings and homes, to entire neighborhoods and communities, LEED is transforming the way built environments are designed, constructed, and operated. Comprehensive and flexible, LEED addresses the entire lifecycle of a building.
How it works?
For commercial buildings a project must satisfy all LEED prerequisites and earn a minimum of 40 points on a 110-point LEED rating system scale.
LEED-certified buildings are designed to:
• Lower operating costs and increase asset value
• Reduce waste sent to landfills
• Conserve energy and water
• Be healthier and safer for occupants
• Reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions
• Qualify for tax rebates, zoning allowances and other incentives in hundreds of cities
LEED is good for business. LEED certification boosts your bottom line, makes you more competitive, limits risk, and attracts tenants.
