LEED Certified Green Building Projects Reach One Billion Square Feet

An additional six billion square feet of projects are registered and currently working toward LEED certification.

“This traction demonstrates the transformation of the way we design, build, and operate buildings,” says Rick Fedrizzi, President, CEO and Founding Chair, USGBC.  “Not only does green building contribute to saving energy, water, and money, it also creates green jobs that will grow and energize our economy.”

Since LEED’s marketplace inception in 2000, over 36,000 commercial projects and 38,000 single family homes have participated.

“The impact of these one billion square feet can be seen in communities around the world,” says Peter Templeton, President of the Green Building Certification Institute, the certifying body for LEED projects. “The use of LEED represents a growing global commitment to improving our built environment for future generations.”
