If so, your local governments are providing incentives (or requirements) for environmental sustainability in new construction projects, public and/or private. (USGBC State Report: Advancing Green Building Policy in the States) At last count (2010), various LEED initiatives including legislation, executive orders, resolutions, ordinances, policies, and incentives are found in 45 states, including 442 localities (384 cities/towns and 58 counties), 35 state governments (including the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico), 14 federal agencies or departments, and numerous public school jurisdictions and institutions of higher education across the United States. LEED projects can be found in over 110 countries around the world. Financial incentives and grants may be available for certain projects in specific locations which choose to seek LEED certification. Some local governments and many federal agencies include achievement of a LEED Certified or Silver Rating as a construction contract goal for new public buildings (e.g. GSA/PBS, DHHS/NIH, DOD, DOS, DOJ, DOC, DOI, DOE, TVA, EPA, etc.) Some agencies have “adopted” the rating principles and administer compliance internally, without official registration with the USGBC.
