LEED is becoming extremely prominent in Sustainable Building. LEED is part of the US Green Building Council’s (USGBC) green building certification system. LEED is a third-party certification program that is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high-performance green buildings. The program encourages and accelerates global adoption of sustainable green building and development practices through a suite of rating systems that recognize projects that implement strategies for better environmental and health performance.
