The LEED Plaque Unpacked: What a Decade of LEED Project Data Reveals About the Green Building Market

PDF
Ten years after the first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification issued by the U.S. Green Building Council, more than 22,000 LEED certified commercial projects have collectively achieved over 1,000,000 point credits using the LEED criteria. These million-plus green building design, construction, procurement, and measurement decisions have been applied across 3 billion square feet in 150 countries, spanning the building’s lifecycle to include all commercial property types and time-scale dimensions. This analysis titled, "The LEED Plaque unpacked: What a decade of LEED project data reveals about the green building market," synthesizes LEED project credit achievement in energy efficiency and efficiency-related measures across successive LEED New Construction (NC) rating system versions spanning over a decade.
