Connecticut LEED

Community Mission

The LEED Community promotes LEED and other U.S Green Building Council (USGBC) programs. We are a community of sustainable building professionals working to expand LEED coverage on various topics and industry strategies.

Community Vision

To encourage transforming buildings and communities through LEED that support a long-term regenerative, restorative and prosperous vision for the future in Connecticut through decarbonization, electrification, equity, ESG (environmental, social, and governance principles), green finance, human health, net zero and resilience.

The LEED Community is excited to engage a wide variety of members, stakeholders, and strategies to design, build, and operate new and existing buildings in a positive way.

Anyone is welcome to join this community. You do not need to be a LEED professional to participate.

We are a USGBC LEED Community and an authorized provider of USGBC content in Connecticut.  We offer training and educational events that you, our membership, want to know about.

Keep an eye out for more information on the recently released LEED v5 for Existing Building certification and more on our new website and newsletter.

Please get in touch if you are interested in becoming a co-leader.

About the U.S. Green Building Council ® (USGBC)

LEED is the world’s leading green building program and performance management system, delivering a comprehensive framework for green building design, construction, operations and performance. Today’s version of LEED raises the bar on building standards to address carbon, energy efficiency, water conservation, site selection, material selection, day lighting and waste reduction. With a rigorous focus on material selection, air quality and human health and comfort, project teams can prioritize the most important asset of a LEED project—people.

LEED-certified buildings are proven to save money, improve efficiency, lower carbon emissions and create healthier places for people. They are critical to addressing the climate crisis, meeting ESG goals, enhancing resilience, and supporting more equitable communities.
