The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™

Our commercial products help businesses go green, reducing water use in hotels, offices, restaurants, stores and other locations. Building projects that use American Standard products can earn points toward certification levels under the LEED program (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design).

LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a voluntary, consensus-based national rating system for developing high-performance, sustainable buildings. Developed by U.S. Green Building Council, LEED addresses all building types and emphasizes state-of-the-art strategies for sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials and resources selection, and indoor environmental quality. LEED is a practical rating tool for green building design and construction that provides immediate and measurable results for building owners and occupants.

LEED was created by the U.S. Green Building Council to establish common standards for environmentally responsible, profitable and healthy places to live and work. Two of the 69 total LEED points involve indoor water use, with one point earned for a 20% reduction in overall water consumption and two points for achieving a 30% reduction. All American Standard water efficient products meet eligibility requirements for water-efficient programs and can be used toward LEED points.
