Northeastern’s LEED Certified Projects
Northeastern University’s Facilities Management is committed to building a greener future, and has integrated sustainability into all of its design, construction, and operating procedures and standards. Through these efforts we have achieved LEED certified buildings as well as spaces, that improve efficiency, conserve resources, and provide a healthy environment for our campus community.
LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is the most widely used rating system for sustainable buildings. LEED provides a framework for healthy, highly efficient, and cost-saving green buildings, and is a globally recognized symbol of sustainability achievement and leadership.
LEED is administered by the U.S. Green Building Council, a nonprofit coalition of building industry leaders. There are four levels of certification: Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Certified.
