Republic and Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)

Allegion recognizes the value of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system to building environmentally safe and sustainable structures.

Commercial buildings in the U.S. account for one-third of our total energy, two-thirds of our electricity and one-eighth of our water. In an effort to focus on these environmental issues - architects, engineers, contractors, developers and construction experts are taking a leadership role in the emerging discipline of sustainable design.

Sustainable building design encompasses the design, construction, operation, renovation, and eventual replacement of a building. The benchmark for sustainable design in the United States is the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). In the system, buildings become LEED certified by earning credits from the following categories: sustainable sites, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources, and indoor environmental quality.
