LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a certification process that spreads environmental awareness to architects and contractors when constructing buildings. The design incorporates energy-efficient, water-conserving buildings with sustainable materials.
In order to achieve each of these recognition levels, a building must comply with nine key features:
- Sustainable Sites
- Water Efficiency
- Energy and Atmosphere
- Materials and Resources
- Indoor Environmental Quality
- Location and Linkages
- Awareness and Education
- Innovation in Design
- Regional Priority
