Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) consists of a suite of rating systems for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings.

Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), and spearheaded by LEED founding Chairman Robert K. Watson, LEED is intended to provide building owners and operators a concise framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions.

USGBC designates three primary types of commercial building credentials:

  • LEED-NC for New Building Construction
  • LEED-EBO&M for Existing Building: Operations and Maintenance
  • LEED-CI for Commercial Interiors
