Frequently asked questions about LEED®, answered.

In the United States, green building strategies that can help reduce energy consumption are increasingly being introduced to traditional building codes. As a result, architects have questions about how their design and product choices will impact their sustainability goals, especially when it comes to one of the biggest green building programs in the country: LEED, an abbreviation of “Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.”

In the Vitro Glass Education Center, we asked our experts to answer some questions about LEED certification, including:

  • What is LEED certification and how can it be achieved?
  • Can building products alone be LEED approved?
  • What are LEED credit categories?
  • What is LEED documentation, what does it include and what generally is not included?
  • What other sustainability certifications exist?
