Taking the LEED: How green buildings can support climate mitigation

LEED certification supporting climate goals

Climate change is among the biggest challenges of our time, affecting virtually every aspect of life as we know it. The impacts will not be evenhanded, implicating concerns over equity and survival for the poorest and least resilient communities.

The good news? There are many solutions available today. Green buildings, like those that are LEED certified, are a global solution for cities, communities and neighborhoods. In fact, LEED buildings deliver greenhouse gas (GHGs) reductions by reducing energy and water consumption, reduced waste generation, using more durable, lower impact materials, and encouraging alternative transportation.
