For many businesses, going green is a matter of changing the way they work. By reducing waste in their operations or using sustainable materials in their production, these businesses lessen their impact on the environment. However, these are not the only means through which companies can become more eco-friendly. In fact, many businesses can shrink the size of their ecological footprints through the places in which they work.
The U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED program provides builders and property owners with standards for energy efficiency and sustainability. Achieving LEED certification means a building exemplifies many of the principles behind sustainable building design. LEED-certified buildings are more environmentally friendly, which therefore helps the businesses inside of them reduce their overall impact on the planet. Even if they don’t employ other methods, sustainable building design helps businesses become greener.
Businesses in the green industry — or any that simply want to become more sustainable — need to understand LEED and what it means for their properties. There is a strict process through which buildings can become LEED-certified. Additionally, there are specific standards those properties must meet before they can be certified through the LEED program. Property owners and businesses also need to understand the different levels of LEED certification and what they mean.
The accompanying guide breaks down what LEED certification entails, and can serve as a helpful resource for any business working to go green.
