Green buildings can be part of the solution in the climate crisis.

Buildings account for nearly 40% of all greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs), according to Architecture 2030—and high-performing green buildings, particularly LEED-certified buildings, provide the means to reduce the climate impacts of buildings and their inhabitants.

Green building strategies address a structure’s planning, design, construction and operations while considering energy, water, indoor environmental quality, materials selection and location. LEED rewards the implementation of these strategies through credits that support energy- and resource-efficient buildings, and that also protect the health and well-being of those who interact with them.

LEED categories and credits

LEED is for all building types and all building phases including new construction, interior fit outs, operations and maintenance and core and shell. To earn LEED certification, a project must first complete prerequisite requirements that lay the foundation for all LEED projects. Next, LEED project teams have the opportunity to select the credits they want to pursue. Points are awarded for the credits completed, with the number of points earned determining the level of LEED certification the project receives. 
The interactive scorecard below is for LEED v4.1 for Building Design + Construction: New construction and Major Renovations. View the scorecards and resources for other project types.
