LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design)
LEED Platinum is the highest level of certification that a building can achieve under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program developed by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC).
To achieve LEED Platinum certification, a building must meet strict criteria related to sustainability, energy efficiency, water conservation, indoor air quality, and use of environmentally friendly materials and construction practices. Buildings seeking LEED Platinum certification must achieve a minimum of 80 points out of a possible 110 points on the LEED rating system.
Achieving LEED Platinum certification is a significant accomplishment, as it demonstrates the highest level of commitment to sustainability and environmental responsibility. Buildings with this certification are leaders in the green building movement, setting a high standard for others to follow. Many LEED Platinum buildings incorporate cutting-edge sustainable technologies and design strategies to achieve their high level of sustainability.
