LEED and COVID-19: Read the latest updates

LEED is green building leadership


LEED®, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is the world’s most widely-used green building rating system, available for virtually all building, community, and home-project types.

LEED is a proven and holistic path to addressing climate change, helping create buildings that are more resource-efficient, resilient, and provide safe and healthy places for people to live, work, learn and play.

 

LEED: Continuous improvement


The latest version of the rating system, LEED v4.1 , is the most comprehensive, collaborative, accessible and effective system to date. It raises LEED’s energy reference standard and adds a carbon metric both new and existing buildings to directly measure buildings’ climate impact.

The beta versions of LEED v4.1 BD+C, ID+C, and O+M are available today. See the changes . In a market that is constantly evolving, one of the hallmarks of LEED is continuous improvement. LEED v4.1 helps project teams meet changing market conditions, including updated energy performance expectations and a growing recognition of the critical importance of carbon pollution. The beta versions of LEED v4.1 BD+C, ID+C, and O+M are available today See the changes.

Registration fees are calculated and paid through the online registration process; receipt of payment determines the date of registration. The certification fee is based on your project's rating system and size; it is calculated and paid within LEED Online when the project team submits documentation for review. Project teams may prepay certification fees at any time. LEED Online reflects Canadian pricing (in Canadian Dollars) and member discounts. Registration and certification fees are not refundable and may change at any time.

Discounts for members:

Member discounts for registration and certification are determined automatically based on the membership status of the individual processing the transaction. Member discounts on registration or certification fees apply to current Specialist members of the CaGBC.
