About LEED®

The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Green Building Rating System™ is a third party certification program and the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings. LEED gives building owners and operators the tools they need to have an immediate and measurable impact on their buildings' performance. LEED promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality.

The number of LEED certified buildings in Indiana continues to grow because building with LEED standards makes sense and saves money over time. Search Google maps database of commercial LEED certified buildings.
