LEED Certification Categories
The US Green Building Council (USGBC) is a non-profit organization, dedicated to sustainable building and development. The USGBC is responsible for developing the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program. LEED is an internationally recognized green building certification program that recognizes best-in-class building strategies and practices. To achieve LEED certification, building projects must satisfy certain prerequisites, and earn points to achieve various credits based on seven categories of performance:
- Sustainable Sites (SS),
- Water Efficiency (WE),
- Energy and Atmosphere (EA),
- Materials and Resources (MR),
- Indoor Environmental Quality (EQ),
- Innovation and Design (ID)
- Regional Priority (RP).
