Once your LEED project has earned certification, it’s likely that you’ll want to tell the world, and you should. LEED certification benefits your bottom line and underscores your sustainability efforts.

It’s a cause for celebration!

Take the first step and request to receive a formal certificate of recognition, and you can choose to order LEED certificates and plaques.

LEED certificates

All LEED-certified projects will receive a high-resolution download of their LEED certificate when ordering through greenplaque.com, and LEED-certified projects are eligible to receive five or ten 11”x14” hard copy certificates and a formal letter of certification free of charge. Additional copies are available for a fee. To receive the certificates, gather the following information:

  • Project ID number (8-10 digits)
  • Project name as it should be printed on the certificate
  • Name and address to appear on the formal letter of certification (usually project owner)
  • Shipping address for delivery (no PO boxes)
First time users will need to create a new account. User information will be stored for reprints or future projects.
 

LEED plaques and signage

Display your certification to the world! Purchase a plaque or other signage to share your success:

  • Greenplaque.com offers various plaques and signage options. Shop now.
  • Buildingplaques.com offers signage that identifies the elements of your building design that earn LEED certification. Shop now.
  • Have questions about how a certification mark, certificate or plaque can be displayed? Check out our trademark policy and branding guidelines.

    LEED Project Directory

    Also, make sure to update your project information in LEED Online, so your project can be displayed in the LEED Project Directory. The directory displays all non-confidential LEED-certified projects, so if your project isn't listed, it may be because it's marked as confidential. Learn more.

    Our LEED project profiles contain basic project details, an overview of the project, a slideshow of project photos, and a link to the projects' LEED scorecard. Submit your project profile today.

I am trying to order LEED certificates for my project. The document preview is not functioning, and so I cannot see if the final versions of the letter and certificate are accurate. Please advise as to what I need to do, or if you need to fix the preview function.

Congratulations :D , is there an article about this effort and the Team here in USGBC?
We Have recently received our LEED certified status and we are attempting to order a plaque to display. Our architect gave me a project number but Green Plaque website does not recognize the number as valid. In addition I locate our project in the directory but there is not a project identification number there either. Is there someone at USGBC I should contact to get a valid number for our project?
Green Building Specialist, U.S. Green Building Council
I hope you have been able to order your plaque. For future reference, certified projects are entered in Green plaque's system every Friday. Once you have accepted certification, please wait to order your plaques/certificates until the following Monday. If you accept certification over the weekend it is not added until the following Friday and therefore is not visible on Green plaque's website until the next business week.

Hi - I completed the details to get the certificate and congrats letter correctly. But in our congrats letter then the 'Mr' appears in the next line after the project owner's name and not on the same line. How can we fix? Thanks Lynne
LEED Specialist, U.S. Green Building Council
Hi Lynne, Sorry to hear there was an error on the letter. Please contact GREENPLAQUE regarding any corrections. I will also follow up with you offline to make sure you can get the letter corrected.

My Project is certified in leedonline.com. When i request plaques and certificates to GREENPLAQUE, the result is: "Unable to find USGBC Project ID ....". If i look for my Project in Directory Section, my project is show as "Certification in progress" Hence my client want to keep the project confidential, it not show at project do not show as Project in Directory. How can I do?
LEED Specialist, U.S. Green Building Council
Hi! It seems that your team might not have accepted the certification in LEED Online after the final review was sent. I will follow up with you offline.

My client thinks they would like more than 10 certificates. How can they get more than 10? Thanks.
LEED Specialist, U.S. Green Building Council
Hi, please contact Green Plaque through the link above to inquire about additional certificates.
Hi, We are certified for both Platinum and Gold for Admin building and Fab building. For promotion purposes can we get a high resolution soft copy of Gold, Platinum and USGBC logo?
Director of LEED Support, U.S. Green Building Council
In general, if you are a full-time employee of a member company, and are connected to the company's membership account, you may download a member logo. First, login at usgbc.org by clicking the 'SIGN IN' button in the upper right corner. Then click "Membership" on the left hand side of the page. You will be able to download a logo under the "Member Logo" section. But we'll also get in touch with you offline to ensure you get what you need - thanks for messaging us!

I think it is great that Green Plaque is now offering digital certificates. "All projects will receive a high-resolution download of their LEED Certificate when ordering through greenplaque.com." I was surprised this was not mentioned in the article. Nor was the option to only get 5 paper certificates instead of 10. Read more at http://www.greenplaque.com/certificates.

That is great to know! We have been waiting for that feature for a long time!!! Thanks.

Hello. My Project is certified the last week. When i request plaques and certificates to GREENPLAQUE, the result is: "Unable to find USGBC Project ID ....". If i look for my Project in Directory Section, my Project isn´t found. What is happen? Thanks
Sustainability Consultant, AtSite
I think it can sometimes take several business days for the LEED project # to get in the system to enable the certificate/plaque ordering.
