This piece will discuss the LEED program and Horizon Disposal Service’s level of implementation for this critical framework.

What Is LEED Certification?

LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is the most predominant green building rating system across the globe. It’s available for almost any type of building project, from new construction to operation and maintenance. LEED offers a framework for project teams to apply, creating cost-saving and highly efficient “green” buildings. LEED certification is recognized all over the world as a premium symbol of sustainability and achievement.

Why Implement a LEED Program?

LEED certification offers instant recognition for construction projects or any businesses that deal with construction projects and materials. By working with a LEED-certified partner, your business credentials gain instant acclaim, especially concerning corporate social responsibility. Most buildings that are LEED-certified have healthier indoor spaces and higher resale value. They also use less water, energy, and other resources. LEED-certified buildings are safer for occupants, the environment, and the community.

Additional LEED-Certification Benefits

  • Over 2.2 million square feet is LEED-certified every day, with over 90,00 projects using LEED.
  • LEED works for any building type in any location. In fact, LEED is currently running in 165 countries and surrounding territories.
  • LEED buildings save water, energy, resources, support human health, and generate less waste.
  • LEED buildings are attractive to tenants. They cost less to operate and often boost employee retention and productivity.
