LEED -- Leadership Energy Environmental Design -- developed in March 2000 by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC), provides a framework for building owners and operators to implement green building development.
Why LEED ?
LEED is a guideline to help building owners and design teams determine and achieve green project goals. It is based on a point system that takes into account all aspects of a buildings impact on the environment. This certification refers to a green building and not individual products.
