The US Green Building Council (USGBC) recently reported its tally of sustainable building certifications for 2016. In the U.S., 3,366 projects received Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification. That totaled over 470 million Gross Square Feet (GSF).

With that information, the USGBC also shared an infographic of the top 10 LEED certification states. The infographic shows Massachusetts, with a population of 6.5 million and 24.4 million sq. ft. certification in 2016 as first in the nation.

Florida, with .84 GSF per capita didn’t make the top 10 for those metrics but was fourth nationally in the number of LEED Projects. Those LEED-certified GSF are certain to grow and achieve results for building owners statewide!
