What is LEED for Homes?

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. And in many markets, certified green homes are now selling quicker and for more money than comparable non-green homes.

Some of the most important buildings in the world use LEED. Shouldn’t the most important building in everyone’s world use LEED, too?

Who it's for?

LEED for Homes is available for building design and construction projects for single family homes and multifamily projects up to eight stories.
