LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is changing the world one building at a time.
LEED is certifying 1.5 million square feet of building space every day in 135 countries.*
Developed in 2000 by the founding members of the USGBC, LEED is a green building certification system that singles out commercial, institutional and residential projects noteworthy for their stellar environmental and health performance. LEED promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability in five key areas of human and environmental health: Sustainable Sites, Water Efficiency, Energy and Atmosphere, Materials and Resources, and Indoor Environmental Quality.
As New Jersey’s leading authoritative resource for environmental, economic and high-performance elements of sustainable green buildings and communities, USGBC-NJ is proud to be home to so many LEED projects.
The searchable database of certified and/or registered projects can be found on USGBC’s website here.
