Beyond LEED:

While LEED is the predominant industry standard for the design and construction of energy efficient & environmentally friendly buildings, there are other programs that promote and facilitate green building concepts. Green Collar Consultants can also help you submit the on-line “Portfolio” required to achieve an Energy Star Rating. Or, perhaps you want to review your facility for potential energy savings and environmental improvements without seeking certification.
