Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), LEED is the most broadly used green building rating system in the world. It was designed to promote energy and resource-efficient structures. Levels of certification include Certified, Silver, Gold, or Platinum. These levels are obtained through six areas, namely sustainable sites, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources, indoor environmental quality, and innovation in design.
