The LEED plaque on a building is a mark of quality and achievement in green building.
LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is the most widely used green building rating system in the world. Available for virtually all building, community and home project types, LEED provides a framework to create healthy, highly efficient and cost-saving green buildings. LEED certification is a globally recognized symbol of sustainability achievement.
When it comes to being LEED certified, there are numerous classifications including Certified, Silver, Gold, and the highest sought after – Platinum.
LEED buildings save energy, water, resources, generate less waste and support human health.
Only 64 schools in the world have been LEED Platinium certified including only 8 projects outside the United States.
Only two educational facilities in Europe have been awarded the LEED Platinum certificate including Akademeia High School and the school project in Athens.
