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. LEED certification is a globally recognized symbol of sustainability achievement and leadership.

Millions of people are living, working and learning in LEED-certified buildings around the world. Here's why.

​​​​​​​LEED Safety First pilot credits

As part of its Healthy Economy strategy, USGBC has six LEED pilot credits to help building teams provide healthy spaces, and to assist with re-entry. The pilot credits outline sustainable best practices that align with public health and industry guidelines related to cleaning and disinfecting, workplace re-occupancy, HVAC and plumbing operations. The credits can be used by LEED projects that are certified or are undergoing certification.

Why certify

We stand for accountability, and we translate that accountability through the LEED third-party certification process. Behind LEED is an infrastructure developed by industry leaders that supports project teams as they innovate and create high performing buildings, homes and neighborhoods. USGBC invests more than $30 million annually to maintain, operate and improve LEED and its customer delivery.

The LEED plaque stands for leadership, and demonstrates that a building has been designed, built and is operating as intended. Being "built to LEED” or “LEED equivalency” doesn’t exist—there is no substitute for LEED certification.

Features of the built environment that impact human health and well-being are air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort and mind.

LEED and WELL are ushering in standards that measure attributes of buildings that impact occupant health by looking at seven factors, or Concepts.
