LEED Is Going Strong in More Than 162 Countries and Territories

Green buildings remain popular, as shown by the fact that LEED projects can be found in more than 162 countries and territories.

Green buildings remain popular throughout, not just the United States, but also countries situated all around the world. This is supported by the statistics released by the U.S. Green Building Council, which show that more than 82,000 LEED projects can be found in more than 162 countries and territories.

In part, this is because green buildings offer a smart and sensible solution to the constant problem of operating costs for both businesses and consumers. After all, green buildings cost less to operate without having to compromise on the well-being of their occupants, thus resulting in small savings that can build up to significant sums over the course of their existence. However, it should also be noted that most businesses understand the need to brand themselves as responsible members of their communities, which can make it much easier for them to market their products and services to their fellows.

The results of this sustained trend can be seen in the rest of the statistics released by the U.S. Green Building Council. For example, it claims to have certified more than 15.7 billion commercial square feet, which is all the more remarkable because of the properties that have not been included in that factor. This is revealed by other statistics such as the certification of more than 255,000 residential units, more than 1,800 K-12 projects, more than 3,800 higher education projects, and more than 3,400 government projects.

With that said, it is important to remember that none of this would have been possible without all of the businesses that exist to support interested individuals in their pursuit of LEED certification. For example, waste disposal is a serious concern in sustainable practices, so it should come as no surprise to learn that waste disposable standards are a cornerstone of LEED certification. Businesses such as Galaxy Transfer exist to assist interested individuals with not just attaining but also maintaining their LEED certification, thus letting them focus on other concerns instead of spending their time and effort on this particular issue.
