LEED is an internationally recognised green building certification system developed by the Green Building Council in the USA.

Buildings wishing to qualify for a LEED certificate have to meet minimum standards in terms of energy and water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, indoor environmental quality, and the material use of a given building.

They are then scored against various environmental metrics and receive either certified, silver, gold, or platinum status.
