Overview of LEED Rating System

LEED is a leadership standard for green building. LEED Certified buildings demonstrate an exemplary level of energy and environmental performance. 

LEED has been USGBC’s primary tool for market transportation. As a result we’ve seen a fundamental shift in the way the buildings are designed, built and operated around the world. Codes and standards have been upgraded to be more efficient, healthy and green. Products and services have also been transformed to support green building demand.

A high performing green building is not just about implementing strategies but monitoring the outcomes and impacts through the actual performance. 

Data is the new natural resource

Arc is a tool that allows any building to monitor its performance. It is not a rating system, a certification, or a program. It is an online tool that can support all of USGBC/GBCI’s programs.

We recognize that LEED alone cannot address all the critical components necessary to achieve healthy cities and communities. Our industry needs other tools to assess the performance of the other sectors as well. To meet these needs, GBCI and USGBC have aligned with other organizations to develop rating systems and tools to complement and support our system goals.

Beyond LEED

The WELL Building Standard™ is the first building standard to focus exclusively on the health and wellness of the people in buildings. WELL takes a holistic approach to health in the built environment addressing behavior, operations and design.
