LEED, or Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design, is changing the way we think about the places where we live, work, and learn. Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council, LEED is a globally recognized framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, and maintenance solutions. It applies to all building types – commercial, residential, and entire neighborhood communities – and addresses the full lifecycle of a building project. Achieving LEED certification for your project may qualify you for money-saving incentives, like tax rebates and zoning allowances, and it is the best way to demonstrate that your building is truly “green.”
To meet LEED goals, it is important to hire LEED-accredited professionals with demonstrated knowledge of green building and the LEED rating system and process.
