What is Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)?
In recognition of the impact that commercial and residential buildings have on the environment, the Green Building Council developed the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System. Depending on the total points awarded, one of four LEED Certification levels is achieved: Certified, Silver, Gold, and Platinum.
Creating a LEED Certification Incentive Program
Designing and constructing high performance buildings with sustainable building methods is good business and preferred environmental practice. Acknowledging this, Burbank created two ordinances, and BWP created a incentive program.
