LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design)

Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) is an internationally recognised green building certification system, providing third-party verification that a building was designed and built using strategies intended to improve performance in areas such as energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, and improved indoor environmental quality.

Green Building Certification

The increasing demand for sustainability, in relation to products and processes, is leading to rapid changes in policies, laws, and regulations around the world, to encourage more sustainable projects.

A number of rating systems, therefore, exist to assess the environmental impacts of buildings, constructions, infrastructure, urban-scale projects, and community projects.

LEED is a Green Building Certification that is designed to assist projects to be more sustainable by providing frameworks with a set of criteria that cover several aspects of a project’s environmental impact.

About LEED

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

Having your building LEED rated demonstrates a company’s desire to have an energy-efficient and environmentally friendly building.

LEED-certified buildings often provide healthier work and living environments, which contributes to higher productivity and improved employee health and comfort.

Lawler Sustainability has a number of LEED Accredited Professionals in-house who can help your building introduce new features and procedures to improve the overall sustainability of the building through energy generation, creating a quality indoor environment, and in the case of new builds, select an area where there is convenient access to public transport.
