Green Building 101: What is LEED? | U.S. Green Building Council

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, or LEED, is a third-party green building certification program and the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction, and operation of high-performance green buildings and neighborhoods. The rating systems give building owners and operators the tools they need to have an immediate and measurable effect on their buildings’ performance. By promoting a whole-building approach to sustainability, LEED recognizes performance in location and planning, sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, indoor environmental quality, innovative strategies, and attention to priority regional issues. Additionally, LEED addresses all building types through different rating systems and rating system adaptations.
