LEED for Homes
LEED™ (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a national green building certification system developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). A voluntary system developed through a consensus process, LEED sets the standard for high-performance green buildings. It is based on well-founded scientific standards, accepted principles and best practices.
The first LEED tool developed by the USGBC was for new construction commercial buildings. LEED for Homes (LEED-H) is now available on the LEED-H website. LEED for Homes promotes the design and construction of high-performance green homes.
