LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. The United States Green Building Council (USGBC) created LEED as a rating system for the performance of green buildings. LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, was created by the United States Green Building Council (USBC) as a national standard used to determine a green building’s overall environmental performance.

LEED is specific to types of construction projects and includes the following categories:
LEED promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five credit categories related to environmental impact: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, and indoor environmental quality. In each of the preceding categories, a building may earn points toward a specific overall LEED rating. For new construction projects (NC), there are 69 points available.
