LEED for Neighborhood Development – Program Implementation


LEED for Neighborhood Development is the nation’s first rating system that integrates the principles of smart growth, new urbanism, and green buildings into a single set of standards for sustainable design at the neighborhood-scale. Criterion has served as the U.S. Green Building Council’s technical consultant for LEED-ND implementation since 2007. The firm’s responsibilities include rating system standards development, technical reference guide preparation, education curriculum development, and, to date, certification reviews of over 250 neighborhoods worldwide. Criterion staff are also accredited LEED Faculty for ND.
