Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design is transforming the way we think about how our buildings and communities are designed, constructed, maintained and operated across the globe. Building projects satisfy prerequisites and earn points to achieve different levels of certification. FlameOFF Coatings, Inc. encourages everyone to register their project with USGBC's LEED department. LEED was designed to create environmentally friendly cost saving solutions.
The answer is you can't! There is no such thing as a LEED certified product. There are many programs that offer Green Status but do not contribute to the LEED program. The LEED program was designed to give various credits for using products that will in return offer credits and points to improve air quality, conserve energy, and select better building materials.
FlameOFF Coatings, Inc. contributes to the Materials and Resources Section of the LEED 2009 Edition which is being practiced in today's construction.
