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 certificates and plaques.

LEED certificates

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 are available for a fee. To receive the certificates, 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.

    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. The directory displays all non-confidential LEED-certified projects, so if your project isn't listed, it may be because it's marked as confidential. Learn more.

    Our LEED project profiles contain basic project details, an overview of the project, a slideshow of project photos, and a link to the projects' LEED scorecard. Submit your project profile today.
