Green buildings offer a better quality of life while also lowering global carbon emissions, reducing electricity and water bills and creating new green jobs. LEED projects earn points established by the United States Green Building Council by adhering to prerequisites and credits across nine measurements for building excellence from integrative design to human health to material use. The LEED rating systems work for all buildings at all phases of development.
