Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) and Green Globes are certification programs for new and existing buildings that use a point and scorecard system. A project receives points if it adheres to a range of credits that focuses on water efficiency, energy usage, innovation, resource usage, and additional sustainability measures. Based on the number of points earned, a project achieves a corresponding rating level.

Although there are distinct differences between the two programs—a sustainability professional can help determine which is appropriate depending on the building type and location—they share an overall goal of achieving greener, more efficient buildings.


  • Join a world-wide initiative to reduce energy usage and lower greenhouse gas emissions.
