WHAT is LEED Certification?
LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a third-party verification system for green buildings developed by the U.S. Green Building Counsel (USGBC). LEED Certification helps to identify how environmentally friendly and sustainable a building really is, taking into account metrics such as: water, energy and waste efficiency as well as indoor environmental quality. As your building starts to “score” better in these metrics, you can climb the ranks up the four levels of LEED Certification ratings: Certified, Silver, Gold, and Platinum.
WHY does it matter to your business?
LEED certification can carry significant tangible incentives. For example, LEED buildings have faster lease-up rates and may qualify for a host of incentives like tax rebates, zoning allowances, higher occupancy rates, and lower tenant turn-over. Not to mention they retain higher property values attracting more commercial construction companies to the field, according to the USGBC.
