What is LEED and why should I know about it?
LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. It is a voluntary, consensus-based collection of national standards for developing high-performance, sustainable buildings and interiors.
It has become increasingly recognized by architects and professional designers as a complete framework for assessing building performance and meeting sustainability goals.
Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), there are currently four available LEED standards:
- LEED-NC (version 2.2) for new construction and major renovation projects.
- LEED-EB (pilot version) for existing building operations and maintenance.
- LEED-CI (pilot version) for commercial interior projects.
- LEED-CS (pilot version) for core and shell projects.
- USGBC also offers a comprehensive system of professional accreditation, training and practical resources.
