The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™ is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction, and operation of high performance green buildings.
LEED for Homes is a voluntary rating system that promotes the design and construction of high performance "green" homes. A green home uses less energy, water, and natural resources; creates less waste; and is healthier and more comfortable for the occupants.
Sustainability provides opportunities to create value and improve quality of life for the company, people and the community. Strong environmental and social performance contribute to sustained profitable growth.
A life cycle analysis is a study of the environmental impact of a given product or service throughout its lifespan.
