LEED certification for existing buildings
The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system is an internationally recognized standard for sustainable building design. The standard incorporates a range of environmental and public health considerations, including energy efficiency, building site selection, and water use. When planning a new building or major renovation, consider pursuing LEED certification.
