What is LEED?
LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is the most recognized sustainable building certification system. Approximately 2.2 million square feet of green building space is being certified daily.
The LEED certification program is the leading international program for sustainable building design and construction. Attaining LEED certification demonstrates environmentally responsible building practices. Certification can be a big boost for the image of both a building’s owner and operator.
The LEED system is flexible and can be applied to all types of buildings, whether a private residence, data center, hotel, or office building.
