Infographic: LEED in the World

Published on Posted in LEED

USGBC has created a new infographic, "LEED in the World," which lists the current number of both registered and certified LEED projects across the globe by gross square meters in different regions, and ranks the top 10 countries for green building.

The numbers show the explosive growth of the green building movement beyond North America, demonstrating the growing global consensus about the worldwide imperative to green the built environment.

(Figures are as of April 2013.)

Do you have a more recent estimate for the number of LEED projects in the United States? The figures listed in the article above are from early 2013, so just checking. Thank you for your help!
Hi! Is there a more recent infographic about the top 10 countries with registered and certified projects?

Not infographics, but the following two articles have updated information: and
I am doing research into LEED certification for a school project and I need to find raw data on LEED certified buildings and what their energy usages are so I can analyse it. If any of you know of a good source please link it as a comment.

Whilst it is a good infographic, I am appalled at the incorrect representation of the map of India. USGBC should exert more responsibility in such matters. If USGBC does not have a correct map outline of India, you can request it from the Consulate General of India in US. Please, could you revise the infographic to accurately represent India?

I´m wondering how these figures were derived. According the USGBC´s project directory, there are only 471 projects in Brazil and 304 in Mexico as of August 2, 2013.

I think that's because these statistics include projects registered to USGBC, GBCI, Canada GBC and India GBC...Not only USGBC
