Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is the program from the U.S. Green Building Council to certify that a building or community was designed to promote human and environmental health. LEED recognizes that organizations participating in its voluntary and technically rigorous program demonstrate leadership, innovation, environmental stewardship, and social responsibility.
LEED-certified buildings achieve high performance in five key areas: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality. These buildings tend to:
- Lower operating costs and increase asset value
- Reduce waste sent to landfills
- Conserve energy and water
- Be healthier and safer for occupants
- Reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions
- Qualify for tax rebates, zoning allowances and other incentives in hundreds of cities
Earning a certain threshold of points will qualify a building for LEED certification.
Green Cleaning qualifies for 1 point. To earn the point, under LEED existing building rules (GB version3), 30% of a building's cleaning products by spend must meet the LEED requirements as outlined in the current LEED manual.
