The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™ is the U.S. Green Building Council’s nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings.

“We have always had a passion for thinking ‘green’ when it comes to buildings,” said Alan Mooney, president of Criterium. “In this day and age it is important for people who want to do the right thing environmentally to have what is needed to help them make the right decisions. LEED certification gives them that opportunity.”

LEED Professional Accreditation distinguishes building professionals with the knowledge and skills to successfully steward the LEED Certification process. LEED Accredited Professionals are professionals who have demonstrated, through examination, a thorough understanding of green building practices and principles, and familiarity with LEED requirements, resources and processes.

LEED gives building owners and operators the tools they need to have an immediate and measurable impact on their buildings’ performance. LEED certification of a home or building provides independent, third-party verification that a building project is environmentally responsible, profitable, and a healthy place to live and work.
