LEED - Leadership in Energy and Design

Many books in the architecture library refer to LEED. This stands for 'Leadership in Energy and Design. '
Here is an excerpt from the Wikipedia entry:

LEED was created to accomplish the following:

  • Define "green building" by establishing a common standard of measurement
  • Promote integrated, whole-building design practices
  • Recognize environmental leadership in the building industry
  • Stimulate green competition
  • Raise consumer awareness of green building benefits
  • Transform the building market
