LEED – Green Building Rating System

LEED – Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design – is a self-assessing system designed for rating new and existing commercial, institutional, and high-rise residential buildings. It evaluates environmental performance from a “whole building” perspective over a building’s life cycle, providing a definitive standard for what constitutes a green building.
