We’re committed to transforming buildings, because we believe that every person deserves a better, more sustainable life.—USGBC
USGBC U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) created LEED to measure and define what green building meant, and to provide a roadmap for developing sustainable buildings. With LEED, we established a baseline—a universally agreed upon holistic system for reducing environmental impact.
LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is the most widely used green building rating system in the world. Available for virtually all building types, LEED provides a framework for healthy, highly efficient, and cost-saving green buildings. LEED certification is a globally recognized symbol of sustainability achievement and leadership.
Millions of people are living, working and learning in LEED-certified buildings around the world.
