What is LEED?The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System is a voluntary, consensus based national rating system for developing high-performance, sustainable buildings. LEED addresses all building types and emphasizes state-of-the-art strategies in five areas: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials and resources selection, and indoor environmental quality.
There are many LEED standards that focus on the design and construction of sustainable buildings and environments. The LEED for Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance standard is the only standard that addresses the daily operations and ongoing maintenance of all types of buildings and office spaces.
