LEED® stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design was developed by the US Green Building Council. The LEED rating system is the most distinguished and widely accepted green building certification. It has gained international recognition in many regions such as Dubai, Chile, Brazil, Italy, India and China and even is being adopted in some local building codes in the United States.

To fully benefit from these changes, architects, engineers, interior designers, and contractors need to achieve one of the five LEED AP accreditations to demonstrate they are familiar with the LEED certification process. This requires an understanding of the prerequisites and credits required to achieve the various levels of LEED certification.

3- Apply core concepts and strategies to achieve success using the LEED rating system in our environment. 

4- Determine where different LEED rating systems can be applied and what is useful for our cultures and societies.
