The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) announced that it has surpassed one billion square feet of Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design commercial green building space recertified. LEED recertification is an important effort to measure energy, water, waste and transportation performance, as well as the human experience of LEED projects. Recertification enables owners to protect their sustainability investments over time. 

This LEED milestone is being celebrated at the annual Greenbuild conference, which was held in San Diego. Over the last year, the green building industry has reached a number of milestones indicating that green building continues to be an important topic as it provides a foundation that supports people and businesses and helps us adapt during a crisis. 

LEED milestones in 2021 include:  

  • More than one billion square feet of recertified LEED space; 
  • Nearly 24 billion square feet LEED registered and certified; 
  • 110,000 projects participating in LEED; and  
  • More than 610 million square feet of LEED certified residential space. 

LEED, the most widely used green building rating system in the world, is available for virtually all building and interior space types. LEED provides a framework for healthy, highly efficient and cost-saving green buildings. LEED certification is a globally recognized symbol of sustainability achievement and leadership.
