LEED green building rating system was originally designed by the US Green Building Council (USGBC). It provided a recognized standard for the construction industry to assess the environmental sustainability of building designs. The Canadian Green Building Council (CaGBC) adapted the LEED rating system to reflect the concerns and requirements of building here in Canada.
LEED encourages the adoption of sustainable green building and development practices. A point-based rating system is used to determine how environmentally beneficial a building really is. LEED recognizes that sustainability should be at the heart of any building – design, construction, and operation. In the past 11 years, CaGBC has certified over 1000 LEED buildings in Canada and registered over 4000.
