Live. Learn. Work. Play. LEED. (video)
LEED is everywhere you go—all you have to do is look around. In neighborhoods, offices, schools, coffee shops and beyond, the LEED green building rating system is changing how you live, learn, work and play.
Find out how LEED is transforming the way we think about creating and constructing buildings, and improving the quality of life for millions of people around the world.
Businesses and organizations use LEED to lower operating costs by reducing energy and water consumption. By increasing the efficiency of buildings, LEED extends the usable lifespan of a space and ensures a lifetime of returns on investment.
Beyond that, LEED-certified buildings positively affect local public health standards by reducing greenhouse gas emissions, improving indoor and outdoor air quality, aiding community resiliency and reducing harmful chemicals and materials used in constructing buildings.
Built with people in mind, LEED creates healthier spaces for everyday life.
