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.
What Does Leed Mean in Construction?
The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™ encourages and accelerates global adoption of sustainable green building and development practices through the creation and implementation of universally understood and accepted tools and performance criteria.
LEED is the most widely used green building rating system in the world, providing a framework to create healthy, highly efficient and cost–saving green buildings.
LEED certification is a globally recognized symbol of sustainability achievement. LEED gives building project teams the opportunity to earn points for their project in six different categories:
water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources, indoor environmental quality, location and regional priority, and innovation and design process. water efficiency:
The goal of water efficiency is to reduce the demand for water in a building. This can be achieved through a variety of means such as water–efficient fixtures and appliances, greywater systems, and rainwater harvesting. energy and atmosphere:
The goal of energy and atmosphere is to reduce the demand for energy in a building. This can be achieved through a variety of means such as energy–efficient lighting and mechanical systems, on–site renewable energy generation, and green power purchase agreements. materials and resources:
The goal of materials and resources is to reduce the
