Total Footprint of LEED

Certified Commercial Projects Passes 1 Billion Sq Ft

November 21, 2010 - Just prior to the annual Greenbuild conference in Chicago last week, the U.S. Green Building Council reports that this month the total footprint of commercial projects certified via the LEED green building rating system surpassed 1 billion sq ft.

The USGBC says another 6 billion sq ft of projects are registered and currently working toward LEED certification around the world.
