LEED-certified buildings cost less to operate, reducing energy and water bills by as much as 40%.
U.S. Green Building Council
The USGBC was founded in 1993 by a community of leaders from every sector of the building industry working together to make a common standard for sustainable building construction.
Their goal and intent was to promote building designs that are environmentally responsible, profitable and healthy places to work and live. Such building environments have been proven to boost worker productivity, reduce absenteeism, help students learn and increase worker satisfaction.
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design
The LEED point concept was developed by the USGBC to establish a numerical point system that would present an objective method of grading architectural projects as to their adherence to sustainability.
LEED has become a cornerstone of sustainable design among building owners, architects, engineers and contractors.
Many municipalities across the country have mandated that all new public buildings, if not actually submitted for LEED certification, must at least be designed and built with the goal of achieving certification.
Earning LEED Credits with Continuing Education
Every two years, LEED Green Associates must complete 15 CE hours (12 general and 3 LEED Specific), and LEED APs with Specialty must complete 30 CE hours (24 general and 6 LEED Specific). Courses under the GBCI General Hours tab have been approved for general GBCI hours.
