2015 is shaping up to be a crucial year for the sustainability movement, and that includes the Green Building industry. There are LEED projects in more than 150 countries and territories, representing every continent except for Antarctica. You can find LEED certified buildings in highly industrialized nations as well as in newly developing ones.
Emerging economics giants like China, India and Brazil are all ranked in the top five of this year’s list. It’s great to see such a growth of LEED overseas, despite many considering it too focused on American standards.This shows the U.S. Green Building Council’s commitment to expand and integrate other nations into the process.
