Awesome! U.S. Green Building Council Announces LEED Certification for World Cup Stadiums!

The U.S. Green Building Council's LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) green building certification system is the world's foremost program for the design, construction, maintenance and operations of green buildings. Every day, 1.7 million square feet (158,000 square meters) of space is certified using LEED. LEED seeks to optimize the use of natural resources, promote regenerative and restorative strategies, maximize the positive and minimize the negative environmental and human health consequences of the construction industry, and provide high-quality indoor environments for building occupants. LEED certification demonstrates leadership, innovation, environmental stewardship and social responsibility. LEED gives building owners and operators the tools they need to immediately improve both building performance and the bottom line. Learn more at
