What is LEED?
LEED is a green building rating system created by the US Green Building Council. LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design – a system for certifying design, construction, and operations of the greenest buildings in the world. Scores are tallied for different aspects of efficiency and design in appropriate categories. LEED measures the sustainability of a building by looking at the use of the site, water, energy, materials and indoor environmental quality.
