LEED - Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design
An independent certification programme for the third-party verification of sustainable building development and not of products, although the individual products do contribute to the building’s overall assessment.
What does LEED entail?
The LEED system incorporates the entire production process, from planning to actual construction, as well as all parts of the building by taking its overall sustainability into consideration. A planner/architect gains points to increase the value of a building or to achieve higher/better certification.
Which LEED certification can be awarded?
The LEED certification is structured as follows:
1) Certified 26-32 points
2) Silver 33-38 points
3) Gold 39-51 points
4) Platinum 52-69 points
