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
