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 in more than 150 countries and territories. 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. In addition, more than 56,000 residential units have been certified under the LEED for Homes rating system, with more than 90,000 more homes registered. Learn more at
