LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a conservation-based building certification program that is run under the control of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). LEED focuses its efforts on imporving performances across five different key areas of environmental and human health:

LEED is devoted to informing and guiding a wide variety of professionals who work with structures to create or convert spaces to environmental sustainability. It is a nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high-performance green building. It provides building owners and operators with the tools needed for making a measurable impact on their buldings' performance. State and local governments from all around the United States are adopting LEED standards for buildings of all kinds, and LEED initiatives at the US Departments of Agriculture, Defense, Energy and State propel activity at the federal level.
