The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) implemented the international Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) system to evaluate buildings’ environmental efficiency. LEED certifications can apply to any new building, and companies around the world are increasingly starting to remodel their existing structures to meet LEED standards.
By implementing optimized environmental efficiency and innovative operational practices, we’re proud to be Florida’s first manufacturer to receive the USGBC’s LEED-Silver Certification!
Key Factors to Building Green Buildings
Developers looking to acquire LEED certification must earn enough points across multiple categories to obtain one of the four LEED rating systems: certified, silver, gold, or platinum. Developers select a target rating and begin construction according to its requirements. This process seeks to inspire project teams to seek innovative solutions that support public health and our environment.
LEED Certification Benefits
Besides the important work done towards reducing your business’s environmental impact, LEED certification shows customers that you value sustainability. LEED-certified buildings also incorporate state-of-the-art architecture and appliances, boosting your building’s aesthetic appeal and practical efficiency. Furthermore, because LEED-certified buildings consume less resources, you spend less money on electricity use and climate control.
The explosion of sustainable building practices has also increased the amount of trained workers willing to do them. Green jobs are in demand, and LEED-certified buildings both increase your ability to recruit and retain new talent and to join a global network of sustainability advocates.
USGBC has assembled a series of LEED certification guides to help walk you through the process of choosing the right LEED certification target for your project. These guides also outline some best practices to follow to achieve each certification level.
