About LEED Certification

LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. LEED projects earn points by adhering to prerequisites and credits across nine measurements for building excellence from integrative design to human health to material use. The LEED rating systems work for all buildings at all phases of development and are meant to challenge project teams and inspire outside-the-box solutions. Based on the number of points achieved, a project then receives one of four LEED rating levels: Certified, Silver, Gold, or Platinum. The School of  Business met all prerequisites, earning 40 points to become LEED Certified.
