Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System to verify green building performance on a consistent scale.

 

Currently seeking Accreditation in LEED

Green buildings drive both economic and productivity benefits. The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), a nonprofit organization of leaders from the building and design industries, is working to transform the way buildings and communities are designed, built and operated. USGBC has developed the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System to verify green building performance on a consistent scale.

 

According to USGBC, green improvements to existing buildings on average pay for themselves within three years and have an annual return on investment of 25 percent to 40 percent. Improvements may include use of green cleaning products, retrofitting lighting to more energy-efficient models, storm water management, recycling of materials, encouraging use of alternative transportation, and improving air quality within buildings.

 

Of these bottom-line improvements, USGBC says productivity benefits provide the greatest return, in the form of reduced absenteeism, enhanced recruitment, better employee morale and reduced turnover.

 

By acquiring accreditation in this program I hope to assist my clients in their projects by offering advice.
