    Key topics and learnings


    LEED is a third-party certification program and the nationally accepted benchmark for design, construction, and operation of high-performing sustainable buildings. LEED gives the owners the performance metrics needed for improving the holistic aspects of energy efficiency in their buildings. LEED also promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability. It does this through six key areas:


    • sustainable site development
    • water savings,
    • energy efficiency,
    • materials selection
    • indoor environmental quality,
    • and locating buildings close to transit and amenities.


    This webinar will explore each of those areas and provide some guidance and best practices to maximize your available points with innovation efficient lighting techniques.
