What is LEED ND?

Is your local grocery store within walking distance… and is there a sidewalk for you to trek there safely? Does your neighborhood boast high-performing green buildings, parks and green space? Do bikes, pedestrians and vehicles play nicely together on the road?

LEED for Neighborhood Development (LEED ND) was engineered to inspire and help create better, more sustainable, well-connected neighborhoods. It looks beyond the scale of buildings to consider entire communities.

Who it's for?

While you may apply the LEED ND rating system to projects at any stage of the development process, from planning through construction, we've provided two certification options that reflect important project milestones.
