Introduction to LEED Certification.
In the world, there are a lot of factories in various countries that follow environmental guidelines and want to be a part of making the world a better place. For such reasons, several organizations identify the factories and rank them according to their contribution to the environment. They have some criteria the establishments need to meet to get certified as environment-friendly.
One of the top companies granting an eco-friendly certificate to establishments is the US Green Building Council, USGBC. They grant a “LEED” certificate to industrial establishments for being eco-friendly. In celebration and recognization of Bangladesh’s textile sectors for striding towards the green movement, Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association, BGMEA, along with USGBC and GBCI, has launched a “LEED Green Factory Award.”
A total of 13 top green factory buildings in Bangladesh got honoured to be “LEED Green Factory Award.” They were granted this certificate for recognition due to their efforts to be sustainable. Not just that, but they also received the LEED Platinum certification, which is one of the highest certifications granted for being an eco-friendly industrial establishment.
What companies are LEED certified?
LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. The development of LEED started in 1993, and it was granted by the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI). It is the most commonly used building rating system in terms of green worldwide.
The LEED certification program has various ratings that help understand the top building strategies in school, home-office, retail, office, new construction, hospital, and other buildings. This certification rates and reviews a factory’s environmental-friendly initiatives such as energy conservation, material selection, indoor environment quality, resources, water efficiency, sustainable site development, innovation, and regional priority.
How to Receive LEED Certification?
To receive the LEED certificate, the establishment has to achieve the highest standards in all the categories starting from the construction of the building to the production quality of materials. All of these are carried out under the supervision of USGBC, as they are the ones to grant the certificate.
The projects will earn several points for different green building strategies from various categories. Depending on the number of achieved points, a project can earn four LEED rating levels: Certified, Silver, Gold, and Platinum.
The credits for each level are also different; the higher the credit, the more it will be recognized by the world. Certified buildings have 40-49 credits, silver has 50-59 credits, gold has 60-79 credits, and platinum has 80+ credits for the rated buildings.
