LEED® Ecological Metal Roofing
The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design or (LEED) creates the standards for the design, construction and operation of green buildings. To help aid these businesses with their green indicatives LEED has created the Green Building Rating System™. LEED gives these businesses the tools needed to go green as well as providing them with a checklist or rating on how well they are doing. This checklist promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing five performance key areas. These areas were developed to look after human and environmental health. Such areas include sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, and indoor environmental quality.
