Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a rating system devised by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) to evaluate the environmental performance of a building and encourage market transformation towards sustainable development.
The Benefits of a Green Home:
• Improve quality of life
• Minimize strain on local infrastructure
• Improve occupant health and comfort
• Reduce operating costs
• Improve occupant productivity
• Create market for green product and services
• Reduce wastewater
• Conserve natural resources
• Improve air and water quality
• Protect biodiversity and ecosystems
LEED is a scorecard – like a nutrition label – that gives a clear, concise picture of all the ways a home performs at a higher level. For more information, click here.
Every home certified under LEED has undergone rigorous, third-party performance testing in addition to onsite visual inspections throughout the construction process.
