LEED® India

The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED-INDIA) Green Building Rating System is a nationally and internationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high-performance green buildings.

LEED-INDIA provides building owners, architects, consultants, developers, facility managers and project managers the tools they need to design, construct and operate green buildings.

LEED-INDIA promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in the following five key areas:

Specific LEED-INDIA programs include:

  • LEED® India for New Construction (LEED® India NC)
  • LEED® India for Core and Shell (LEED® India CS)

LEED-INDIA rating system provides a roadmap for measuring and documenting success for every building type and phase of a building lifecycle.

  • Sustainable site development
  • Water savings
  • Energy efficiency

LEED India certification provides independent, third-party verification that a building project meets the highest performance standards. The LEED India plaque awarded by the IGBC is a recognition of the project's achievement.
