Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a rating system used for green buildings and is overseen by the United States Green Building Council. LEED certification provides third-party verification that human health, environmental responsibility, and other performance goals of building projects have been achieved. LEED certified buildings make a public statement about commitment to sustainability. As USGBC puts it, “LEED certification is a globally recognized symbol of sustainability achievement and leadership.”
