12,000 LEED-Certified Green Building Projects

 
Leed Cerfification gets big with over 12,000 projects.

The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) has announced that the 12,000th commercial project has earned LEED certification. Since its launch in 2000, the LEED green building program has transformed the way built environments are designed, constructed, operated and maintained.

The 12,000th project is the LEED Gold Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge. Paid for by the Recovery Act and rebuilt after the original facility was destroyed by Hurricane Ike in 2008, the facility will house new wildlife exhibits, an environmental education center, and National Parks employees.

"This milestone is made even more relevant as it is happening as the final comments are being collected on LEED 2012, the next iteration of continuous improvement of the LEED program," says Rick Fedrizzi, President, CEO & Founding Chair, USGBC.

"With these next changes, LEED will continue in its role as a catalyst for transformation of the built environment to ever higher standards of sustainable practice. Even in these challenging times, it's clear that green building is a movement whose time is now."
