Green Buildings and Energy Efficiency

There are three prominent standards in which a “Green” or Sustainable building can be rated on: Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), Energy Star, and National Green Building Standard. All three standards strive to satisfy key areas of: Improvement of Energy Efficiency and Water Conservation, Indoor Environmental Quality, Reduction of Ownership Cost of Facilities, Site Development, and Sustainable Environmental Stewardship.
