LEED Certification helps the Earth
LEED buildings can be certified at four different levels – Certified, Silver, Gold, and Platinum. These levels are based on points attained during construction or refit. The benefits of opting for LEED certification for a building include 1) saves money, 2) enhances productivity, 3) proves environmental action, and 4) improves employee/resident health.
LEED certifications directly reduce the effects of global climate change, saves biodiversity, and lowers the rate of species extinctions. For more information about LEED certification visit the USGBC website HERE.
