Did you know you can now certify entire cities and communities with LEED?

Beyond being a game-changing green building rating system, LEED is now also a way to certify whole cities and communities. Make your city an environmentally friendly place that is healthy for all residents and sets an example for others across the nation.

The LEED for Cities certification pilot allows cities to measure and improve performance, focusing on outcomes from ongoing sustainability efforts. To take part in the pilot, city project teams must register their cities in the Arc platform, complete prerequisites and provide data to receive a performance score in Arc.

LEED for Cities helps you measure and communicate sustainability performance across an array of metrics. No matter what the size of your city, you can start using the technology—you can even begin by focusing on an eco-district, micro-grid or single neighborhood.
