Piloted in 1999 and launched in March of 2000, LEED or Leadership In Energy and Environmental Design is a guideline put together by the US Green Build Council to help certify projects and accredit building professionals ranging from architects to contractors and consultants to ensure green and sustainable building methods. Essentially it is a rating system for buildings and is completely voluntary except in a growing number of states where it has been adopted as a requirement for public projects. The USGBC is a non-profit non-government organization.
