Construction - LEED / GREEN Practices


What is L.E.E.D.?

     L.E.E.D is The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™. It encourages and accelerates global adoption of sustainable green building and development practices through the creation and implementation of universally understood and accepted tools and performance criteria.

     LEED is a third-party certification program and an internationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high 


performance green buildings. It provides building owners and operators the tools they need to have an immediate and measurable impact on their buildings’ performance.

LEED promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five key areas of human and environmental health:
  • sustainable site development
  • water efficiency
  • energy efficiency
  • materials selection
  • indoor environmental quality
Equipment World is proud to work with Construction Specialty Suppliers that have incorporated L.E.E.D. into their product offerings.  Below is a list of suppliers & other resources with direct Links to their L.E.E.D. & Environmental Policy information pages:
