LEED, or Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design, is a green building certification program. From sustainable site development to indoor environmental quality—LEED focuses on building practices that support areas of human and environmental health. There are more than 68,000 LEED commercial projects in the United States and LEED certified buildings exist in more than 150 countries and territories and 6 continents.
Green buildings save money, have a positive influence on the health of occupants, and promote renewable clean energy. They also improve rental rates to 20% above average and increase selling prices.
