LEED for Homes

LEED for Homes is a voluntary rating system that promotes the design and construction of high-performance green homes, including affordable housing, mass-production homes, custom designs, stand-alone single-family homes, duplexes and townhouses, suburban and urban apartments and condominiums and lofts in historic buildings.

LEED for Homes is developed and certified through the US Green Building Council (USGBC). The LEED green building certification program encourages and accelerates global adoption of sustainable green building and development practices through a suite of rating systems that recognize projects that implement strategies for better environmental and health performance.

All components of the building process are taken into consideration when developing a project under this rating system:

  • Site Selection
  • Site Development
  • Indoor Environmental Quality
  • Water Efficiency
  • Materials Selection
  • Residents Awareness
  • Innovation
