The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Professional Credentials program is the industry's agreed-upon way of identifying professionals who demonstrate ongoing excellence in green-building practice, providing certainty and relevance for the marketplace. The credentials are designed to meet two goals. First, they recognize green-building expertise and create incentives for professionals to maintain and advance their knowledge and skills.
