LEED Energy Efficient Buildings Interactive Map

LEED is an internationally recognized green building certification system, providing third-party verification that a building or community was designed and built using strategies aimed at improving environmental performance, including energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts. The LEED program was developed by the U. S. Green Building Council. LEED provides building owners and operators a concise framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions.

Cambridge zoning requires that large construction (generally over 25,000 sf) conform to LEED criteria as detailed in the Sustainable Design and Development section of the Zoning Ordinance.

There are several types of LEED standards. Follow the links to learn more from the U. S. Green Building Council (USGBC) web site:

This map shows the locations of Cambridge buildings that have received LEED recognition (Certified) or are working towards LEED certification (Registered).  Certified projects are those that have met the appropriate LEED standard at one of four performance tiers: Certified, Silver, Gold, or Platinum.
