LEED is Pushing the Green Building. The LEED certification process is designed to inspire project teams to seek innovative solutions that are better for our environment and better for our communities.
LEED works for all buildings-from homes to corporate headquarters-at all phases of development. Projects pursuing LEED certification earn points across several areas that address sustainability issues.
