Top 10 States for LEED Certification

The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) has released its annual list of Top 10 States for LEED. Combined, these regions comprise 468 million gross square feet of LEED-certified space and are home to 128 million Americans.

The top is based on 2010 U.S. Census data and includes commercial and institutional green building projects certified throughout 2018. The list was calculated using per capita figures to allow for a fair comparison of the level of green building taking place among states with significant differences in population and number of overall buildings.
