USGBC's residential rating system, LEED for Homes, was launched in 2008. The LEED rating systems are developed through an open, consensus-based process led by LEED committees. LEED is a voluntary program that provides independent, third-party verification that a home was designed and built using methods for achieving high performance in multiple areas of sustainability including energy, water, waste management, indoor air quality, and sustainable site development. There are multiple rating systems for all types of buildings including Existing Buildings and Homes for residential projects. Homes may achieve different levels of certification (platinum, gold, silver, certified) depending on the number of LEED prerequisites and credits that are met.
