Since its inception in 1998, LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) has become an internationally recognized green building certification system developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).

The USGBC recently announced an overhaul of the LEED rating system in the form of “LEED 2009,” which incorporates several changes to the LEED process. The 2009 revamp initiative, which the USGBC calls LEED version 3, or LEED v3, has several new and/or revised components.
