From individual buildings and homes to entire neighborhoods, LEED
is transforming the way we think about how our buildings and
communities are designed, constructed, maintained and operated
across the globe. Comprehensive and flexible, LEED is a green
building tool that addresses the entire building lifecycle
recognizing best-in-class building strategies.
At its core, LEED is a program that provides third-
party verification of green buildings. Building projects satisfy
prerequisites and earn points to achieve different levels of
certification. Prerequisites and credits differ for each rating
system, and teams choose the best fit for the project.
