LEED Certified

LEED, an acronym for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is an internationally recognized system for green building certification. This stringent credentialing system provides independent verification that a facility was designed and built using environmentally sound principles.

LEED certification provides third-party verification that a building has been designed and built using strategies aimed at improving performance across key sustainability metrics: energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, stewardship of resources , and sensitivity to the impact of the build on the environment.

To become LEED Certified, facilities must first register and apply for certification before being reviewed by Green Business Certification Inc., the only credentialing body authorized to award LEED status.
