The point of LEED
LEED is a globally recognized assessment system designed to deliver triple-bottom-line returns for people, the planet, and profit. A project is analyzed on 6 categories and awarded points that correlate to a LEED level: Platinum, Gold, Silver, or Certified.
BREEAM deals with stars
Founded in 1989, BREEAM is the long-runner out of the bunch. The system is used worldwide and evaluates projects on ten parameters. The scheme uses certification bodies and licensed assessors to rate and award projects 1-6 stars (6= outstanding).
LBC: a positive challenge
LBC is one of the most rigorous standards for the built environment. Apart from achieving the 7 petals, a building needs to operate 12+ and have a proven positive impact on the places, communities, and people to get fully certified.
