The LEED rating system was developed by the U.S. Green Building Council to provide a national benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance sustainable buildings. In order for a building to become LEED certified, it must meet certain prerequisites and achieve specified performance levels to qualify for rating points. CertainTeed is a member of the U.S. Green Building Council and supports the LEED program.
These standards provide verification that a building project meets the high performance standards for green buildings. LEED certification is recognized nationwide as proof that a building is designed to be environmentally responsible and a healthy place to live and work.
