LEED for Homes: International market update 2015
A home is more than just shelter: homes are the most important buildings in our lives. We think that every building should be a green building—but especially homes. Why? LEED homes are built to be healthy, providing clean indoor air and incorporating safe building materials to ensure a comfortable home. Using less energy and water means lower utility bills each month.
LEED for Homes is available for building design and construction projects for single family homes and multifamily projects up to eight stories—and LEED for Homes projects are now in dozens of countries around the globe.

Organized by region, the data below shows current LEED for Homes registrations and certifications to date outside of the U.S. and Canada.
