What Is LEED Certification & How Does Eco-Friendly Flooring Earn Points?, Lynbrook, New York

What Is LEED Certification?

LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is a widely used rating system that measures how green a building is. By adopting eco-friendly materials, efficient appliances, and sustainable building practices, you can increase the value of a property while generating less waste and contributing to a healthier environment. To achieve LEED certification, you need to register with the USGBC and comply with a variety of construction practices, including the use of eco-friendly flooring, energy usage regulations, and environmental laws. 

How Does a Business Earn Points?

eco-friendly flooringThere are four levels of LEED certification that earn a varying degree of points. These points do more than show potential customers and the public you are an environmentally friendly company. In fact, most LEED-certified businesses cost less to operate and are leased faster, and builders can take advantage of tax credits and incentives based on their points and rating. For example, committing to green building standards is rewarded with an expedited permitting process, leading to cost savings.

Contact an installation contractor to benefit from the financial incentives of LEED certification.
