Helping clients specify the environmental sustainability performance of their buildings.

LEED Challenge

Worldwide, the building industry accounts for a large portion of all carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and raw materials consumption. Energy efficiency as well as corporate environmental and social responsibility are some of the drivers transforming the real estate market today. 

Being “green” in the property market today reaps invaluable benefits as investors and property owners alike have new expectations for environmental sustainability.

 

What is LEED?

Green building standards have been developed to quantify sustainability success and reward the efforts of certain projects. 

LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a Green Building Rating System developed by the U.S Green Building Council (USGBC) and introduced to the market in a large number of countries.
