LEED – an acronym for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design – is an internationally recognized green building certification system. Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), LEED provides building owners and operators a concise framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations, and maintenance solutions.
LEED certification provides third-party assurance to home buyers that their home complies with rigorous technical requirements for energy and water efficiency, indoor air quality, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, non-toxic materials, and environmental performance.
Homes that are certified through LEED complete a technically rigorous verification process that includes a home energy (HERS) rating and onsite inspections. Lower insurance rates, advantageous financing, and government incentives may be available for LEED-certified homes.
