What is LEED?
The benchmark for sustainable design is the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) rating system developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). LEED is the most widely used green building rating system in the world. It provides a framework to create healthy, highly efficient and cost-saving green buildings. LEED certification validates that a home has been designed and built to promote sustainability.
Arcadia Custom products play an important role in obtaining LEED certification by:
- Optimizing energy performance
- Increasing ventilation
- Using low-emitting materials, paints, coatings and recycled content
