What is LEED certification?
The LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) certification is for real estate projects. Its objective is to establish a recognized guide for the design of green buildings, giving added value to the project and stimulating sustainable building.
Created by the US Green Building Council in 1993, with the purpose of promoting the development of sustainable and energy efficient buildings, this certification aims to reward the use of sustainable strategies in all construction processes of the real estate project. From the use of materials, water management, energy control to the creation of eco-friendly environments.
The simple fact of knowing that a building has this certification clearly indicates that its design, construction, and maintenance is carried out with the highest quality standards, benefiting both the environment and its owners.
Benefits of LEED certification
Increase in the value of the building in the market
It is estimated that meeting the LEED certification standards generates savings of 30% to 70% in energy consumption, 30% to 50% in water consumption and reduces waste from apartments by up to 90%. All this in the end translates into monetary savings and an increasingly green lifestyle, which adds value to the property.
Better water and energy conservation
LEED-certified apartment buildings consume on average 25% less energy and 7% less water than other projects, also minimizing CO2 emissions by approximately 34%. You will see these advantages reflected in your monthly expenses.
Safer and healthier
Now that we spend much of our time inside buildings, we are more aware of how important it is to have quality air circulation and other essential factors. That is why LEED encourages the implementation of strategies that improve air quality, natural lighting, exterior views, and acoustics improvements. This creates healthier spaces for homeowners with cleaner air, free of harmful chemicals, and great access to natural light.
