Your LEED project is certified! Here's how you can start promoting it

Published on Written by Posted in LEED

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 plaques and certificates.

LEED certificates and plaques

All LEED-certified projects will receive a high-resolution download of their LEED certificate when ordering through, 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 and LEED plaques are available for a fee. To receive the certificates or plaques, please follow the steps below:

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.

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.

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?

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 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" 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

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

I think it can sometimes take several business days for the LEED project # to get in the system to enable the certificate/plaque ordering.
