What Does LEED Certification Mean and How Important Is It?

You may have heard the term “LEED Certified Building” and understand that LEED has something to do with a level of environmental construction standards. But what does that actually mean and should it be important to you?

LEED stands for Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design and is the most recognized and widely used rating system in the world. It was developed as a global benchmark for green high-performance commercial, residential, institutional and industrial buildings. LEED offers benchmarking in 5 categories;

Building Design and Construction,
Interior Design and Construction,
Building Operations and Maintenance,
Neighborhood Development, and
Homes.
