LEED

LEED certificate
LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.
 
Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), LEED is an internationally recognized certification system that measures how well a building or community performs across these metrics: energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts. LEED provides building owners and operators a concise framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions. 

LEED applies to virtually all building types -- commercial as well as residential. It works throughout the building lifecycle -- design and construction, operations and maintenance, tenant fitout and significant retrofit.  Certifying a building project is based on which construction type a building falls into with the exception of schools and healthcare projects, which require very specific guidelines. (Source: USGBC / Photo: Flickr)
