LEED, or Lead­er­ship in Ener­gy and Envi­ron­men­tal Design, is an inter­na­tion­al­ly-rec­og­nized green build­ing cer­ti­fi­ca­tion sys­tem. Devel­oped by the U.S. Green Build­ing Coun­cil (USGBC) in March 2000, LEED pro­vides build­ing own­ers and oper­a­tors with a frame­work for iden­ti­fy­ing and imple­ment­ing prac­ti­cal and mea­sur­able green build­ing design, con­struc­tion, oper­a­tions and main­te­nance solutions.

LEED pro­motes sus­tain­able build­ing and devel­op­ment prac­tices through a suite of rat­ing sys­tems that rec­og­nize projects that imple­ment strate­gies for bet­ter envi­ron­men­tal and health performance.
