Points for Concrete in LEED

Using concrete can facilitate the process of obtaining LEED® Green Building certification. Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a point rating system devised by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) to evaluate the environmental performance of a building and encourage market transformation towards sustainable design. The system is credit-based, allowing projects to earn points for environmentally friendly actions taken during the construction and use of a building. LEED was launched in an effort to develop a “consensus-based, market-driven rating system to accelerate the development and implementation of green building practices.” The program is not rigidly structured; not every project must meet identical requirements to qualify.

There are numerous LEED rating systems for various project types, including LEED for New Construction, LEED for Schools, LEED for Commercial Interiors, and LEED for Homes.
