Florida ranked fourth in the number of LEED projects in the U.S. in 2016, according to an annual ranking produced by the US Green Building Council. The annual ranking highlights states throughout the United States that made significant strides in sustainable building design, construction and transformation over the past year. LEED is the world's most widely used and recognized green building rating system.
"This speaks volumes about Florida's commitment to environmental excellence and social responsibility," said Mike Hess, Chair of the USGBC FL Chapter. "We applaud the companies, owners, municipalities and everyone who played even a small part in this effort to deliver environmentally responsible, healthy and resource-efficient buildings in 2016 and in the future."
