About LEED

The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating

System™ is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation

of high-performance energy-efficient buildings. LEED provides building owners and

operators with the tools they need to have an immediate and measurable impact on the

energy efficiency of their buildings. The U.S. Green Building council oversees and

manages the LEED program.

There are no “LEED-certified” products. However, A. O. Smith water heaters — because of their

energy-efficient technologies — can contribute to LEED certification of new residential

construction projects.

LEED has separate rating systems for new commercial construction, commercial interiors,

commercial core and shell, existing commercial buildings and new residential

home construction.

For each rating system, LEED issues credits or points in six categories:

■  Sustainable Sites

■ Water Efficiency

■  Energy and Atmosphere

■ Materials and Resources

■  Indoor Environmental Quality

■ Innovation and Design

LEED certification provides independent, third-party verification that a building project meets 
the highest energy-efficient building and performance measures.
