    LEED® for Homes

    LEED® is an internationally recognized green building certification system, providing third-party verification that a building or community was designed and built using strategies aimed at improving performance across all the metrics that matter most: energy savings, water efficiency, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources with sensitivity to their impacts.

    The LEED® for Homes program was specifically created for the certification of homes and consists of eight categories: Innovation & Design, Location & Linkages, Sustainable Sites, Water Efficiency, Energy & Atmosphere, Materials & Resources, Indoor Environmental Quality and Awareness & Education.

    Here’s more info from the LEED for Homes website at http://www.usgbc.org/articles/getting-know-leed-homes-design-and-construction:

    LEED for Homes is the right fit for residential projects.

    • Savings: A LEED home is designed to save energy and water, which can translate into money savings and can even lower your insurance rates.
      LEED: A Pre-Occupancy Case Study” provided by the Alliance for Environmental Sustainability
      Farmers Insurance Goes 'Green' for Homeowners” by Cristofer P. Pereyra, "The Insurance Expert"

    • Health: A LEED home is been built to consider a healthy environment for families.
    • Value: Data has shown that green and efficient buildings often sell for more, and in less time, than non-green buildings.
      American Dream Homes Turn Green.” Yahoo! Real Estate, December 2011
      In a down market, does having a green home make "cents"? .” GreenBuilder Magazine, September 2011

    • Trusted: The third-party inspection and testing provides an assurance that the home should meet the sustainable requirements of LEED for Homes.

    LEED for Homes promotes the design and construction of high-performance homes – energy efficient, resource efficient, and healthy for occupants. A home that achieves LEED certification has been designed to maximize fresh air indoors, minimizing exposure to airborne toxins and pollutants. It also has the potential to use 20-30% less energy—and some up to 60% less—than a home built to code. And less energy use means lower utility bills every month. In many cases, with a certified green appraiser, lower cost of home ownership can translate into better financing options.

    LEED certification recognizes and celebrates leadership in green homebuilding, and allows a builder to clearly differentiate their work. For the homebuyer, LEED is like the nutrition label that demonstrates in measurable terms that a home incorporates efficient techniques and features, and that the final product has been third party-verified and performance tested.

    Builders interested in pursuing LEED for Homes certification begin the process by contacting a LEED for Homes Green Rater. Green Raters are local experts who conduct the on-site project verification services required for certification and performance testing.


    The U.S. Green Building Council® is committed to a prosperous and sustainable future for our nation through cost-efficient and energy-saving green buildings. With a community comprising 78 local affiliates, more than 20,000 member companies and organizations, and more than 140,000 LEED® Professionals™, USGBC® is the driving force of an industry that is projected to contribute $554 billion to the U.S. gross domestic product from 2009- 2013.

    USGBC leads an unlikely diverse constituency of builders and environmentalists, corporations and nonprofit organizations, elected officials and concerned citizens, and teachers and students. USGBC is the developer of the LEED green building certification program and the convenor of the Greenbuild® International Conference & Expo.
