Check out Stuart Kaplow’s Green Building Update to see a highlight of how much LEED does in just one week. Some stand out stats include:

  • 45 projects were certified. Those 45 projects comprised 5,891,366 square feet in total of LEED certified space.
  • The 45 projects were spread across 28 states.
  • Of the projects, 2 were Platinum certified, 15 Gold certified, 22 Silver certified, and 6 Certified.
  • The credit achieved most in these projects was the EAc1 Energy Performance. And the 2nd most achieved credit was IEQc4.4 Low Emitting Materials – Paints and Coatings.

As Stuart points out, the green building community continues to accomplish astonishing achievements week by week – the numbers speak for themselves. LEED is the measuring stick by which we can verify and celebrate our progress toward a high-performing, healthy built environment.
