GREEN WORKSPACE CERTIFICATION
Making environmentally smart workspace design choices can make a big difference to your impact on the planet. LEED is an internationally recognized system for green building certification developed by U.S. Green Building Council. The USGBC is a non-profit organization dedicated to expanding green building practices and education.
LEED for Commercial Interiors (LEED-CI) is the green benchmark for certifying high-performance interiors providing businesses a concise framework for practical implementation and measurement. The rating system provides guidelines for specific points based on the design and construction of workspaces for office, retail, restaurant, healthcare, hotel/resort and education sectors.
LEED is a vital first step for North America to build environmentally sustainable buildings. To truly stop devastating the planet, we have to change our behaviors. The most important being that design, architecture and buildings aren’t disposable. “Recyclable” is just a nice way of saying “Planned Obsolescence”.
