USGBC Releases the 2015 Top 10 States for LEED Green Building Per Capita in the U.S.

USGBC announced its annual Top 10 States for LEED, the world’s most widely used and recognized green building rating system. The per capita list highlights states throughout the country that are making significant strides in sustainable building design, construction and transformation. LEED-certified spaces use fewer energy and water resources; save money for families, businesses and taxpayers; reduce carbon emissions; create jobs; and establish a healthier environment for residents, workers and the larger community.

A continued strong performance from Maryland and Virginia has reaffirmed the mid-Atlantic region, which includes Washington, D.C., as the epicenter of green building. While D.C. is not included in the list of top states due to its status as a federal territory, it is notable, as it continues to lead the nation with 19.3 square feet of LEED space per resident certified in 2015.
