Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a third-party certification program for buildings and communities that guides their design, construction, operations and maintenance toward sustainability.

LEED works for all building types, from corporate offices to homes.  It’s a way of saying, “My building is sustainable and efficiently run.”  Each building or project that registers for LEED certification earns points to achieve a certification level: Certified, Silver, Gold and Platinum. Points are earned based off of the sustainable practices implemented during the construction and renovation phase of building.  Your building is then certified by the number of points it achieved.  The more points achieved, the higher the certification.
