The majority of the office buildings in our portfolio have been certified as meeting one of LEED’s exacting standards. Beyond just achieving LEED certification, we are working to maintain certification for our properties that first earned the designation more the five years ago, and we continue to evaluate the portfolio to identify and pursue additional opportunities to enhance the value and appeal of our properties through LEED certification.
LEED, or Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design, is a green building certification program overseen by the U.S. Green Building Council that recognizes best-in-class building strategies and practices. To receive LEED certification, building projects must satisfy prerequisites and earn points to achieve different levels of certification.
