The LEED (Leadership in Energy Environmental Design) Green Building Rating SystemÂ® is a voluntary, consensus-based national standard for developing high-performance, sustainable buildings. Members of the Green Building Council, representing all segments of the building industry, developed LEED and continue to contribute to its evolution. LEED provides a complete framework for assessing building performance and meeting sustainability goals. Based on well-founded scientific standards, LEED emphasizes state of the art strategies for sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality.
