LEED in new and existing markets

Published on Written by Posted in LEED

LEED Earth is a new campaign designed to bring LEED, the most widely recognized and used green building certification program, around the world.

We are offering free LEED certification to the first projects to certify in the over 100 countries (See Below) where LEED currently does not exist. Additionally, LEED Earth is offering free LEED certification to the first Platinum project—in any country--to certify using the newest version of LEED.

Whether you are in a new or existing market, to participate in the program and register a project, contact us at LEEDEarth@usgbc.org. View the campaign's rules and regulations. Share your involvement in the campaign or follow updates on Twitter with hashtag #LEEDEarth.
