What is LEED?
LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is the most widely used green building rating system in the world. The LEED certification is developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and is a globally recognized symbol of sustainability achievement and leadership. Available for virtually all building types, LEED provides a framework for healthy, highly efficient, and cost-saving green buildings.
Projects pursuing LEED certification earn credits for various green building strategies across several categories. Based on the number of credits achieved, a project earns one of four LEED rating levels: Certified, Silver, Gold or Platinum.
More than just a certification
A LEED certification gives an extra dimension to a building. But how come?
- Low running costs
Because water and energy consumption has been carefully considered before and during construction, you are assured of an energy-efficient building that will benefit you for years to come.
- Increased well-being and productivity
Thanks to correctly selected climate control systems, you have invested in an optimal indoor climate. This translates directly to the performance and health of the people who work in the building.
- Investment in the future
A LEED certificate is also a great marketing tool. By investing in a sustainable building, you are also investing in your corporate image and thus your future. An employer that profiles itself as sustainable strengthens its position in the market.
BREEAM vs LEED
BREEAM and LEED are both systems to rate sustainable buildings. The big difference between them is the process from the design to a certified building. If you choose for BREEAM there will be a qualified reviewer supporting you with the entire design process. With LEED you have more freedom in de design stage, but the certification process may require more effort and paperwork.
What method you should choose depends on how you want to approach the entire process.
