What is LEED?

LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.

LEED is a certification through the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and evaluated by a third party verification system to show performance in commercial and residential structures. The point system evaluates the “green” in regards to energy consumption, water efficiency, environmental quality, and much more. It is somewhat of a roadmap to make your home and/or work as environmentally friendly as possible.

Green Field Products is a proud member of the USGBC.
