What is LEED?
LEED is a third-party certification program that considers site design, water conservation, energy use, building materials, and indoor air quality. LEED also looks at things like light pollution, transportation choices, and linking the project to the local community. It’s more than just a system of checklists and credits though. If you have a LEED building, you’ve taken a much broader approach to planning and design by addressing issues that go beyond the building. You’ve also take into account the end-users of the building, and everyone who will maintain that building, by including them in the design process.
LEED has really proven its value. It’s the most recognized and widely-used certification program in the world. It’s supported by a network of over 185,000 LEED credential holders.
