LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a voluntary rating system to certify sustainable buildings and neighbourhoods. Launched by the US Green Building Council in 1998, LEED has been gaining traction around the world – in fact 1 of every 3 LEED projects is outside the United States. According to USGBC, there are more than 100 certified projects in Ireland, of which 60% achieved the certification in the past two years. (Data: USGBC, March 2020.)
