Leed Rating in Buildings
Buildings and homes (or the “built environment”) affects natural environment. Buildings, where people spend
90% of their time, adversely impact human health. Buildings also account for 40% of energy and 16% of the water used
annually worldwide. Air quality inside buildings is 2 to 5 times worse than outside Green Building involves minimizing
these negative environmental and human health impacts and enhancing positive results throughout the building’s entire life
cycle. In addition to environmental benefits, through integrated design, they can be constructed at the same or lower cost
than conventional buildings.
