LEED ND: Plan | v4 - LEED v4

Certified green building



To encourage the design, construction, and retrofit of buildings using green building practices.


Design, construct, or retrofit one whole building within the project to be certified through a LEED rating system (if LEED for Commercial Interiors, 75% of the total building floor area must be certified), or through a green building rating system requiring review by independent, impartial, third-party certifying bodies that have been accredited by an IAF-accredited body to ISO/IEC Guide 65 or, when available, ISO/IEC 17065.
