LEED / LEED-EBOM

LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) provides building owners and operators with a framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions. LEED has evolved since its original inception in 1998 to more accurately represent and incorporate emerging green building technologies.  LEED  provides independent, third-party verification that a building, home or community was designed and built using strategies aimed at achieving high performance in key areas of human and environmental health: Sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality.
