LEADERSHIP IN ENERGY AND ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN (LEED) 

The LEED Green Building Rating System is a voluntary, consensus-based national standard that provides a framework for developing high-performance, sustainable buildings.

It incorporates sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality.

LEED was created to:

  • define "green building" by establishing a common standard of measurement
  • promote integrated, whole-building design practices
  • recognize environmental leadership in the building industry
  • stimulate green competition
  • raise consumer awareness of green building benefits
  • transform the building market

Wilkie Sanderson contributes to the advancement of LEED initiatives in several ways:

  • Indoor Air Quality – We can use a formaldehyde-free core material for our particle board made of recycled wheat chaff and sunflower seeds.
  • Recycled Material Content – Many of our materials consist of a blend of recycled byproducts.
