What is LEED?

LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is an internationally recognized green building certification system. Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council, LEED is a point-based certification system that measures how well a home performs in the categories of: energy savings, water efficiency, C02 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts. LEED Platinum is the highest designation of all; every building and home at Cypress Villages is either LEED Silver or Platinum.  Read more about LEED.
