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.

Ask your developers and architects about LEED, and contact the U.S. Green Building Council at leedinfo@usgbc.org or 202-82-USGBC for more information. Visit the LEED-Accredited Professionals Directory to find qualified green building specialists near you.
