LEED Building Policy

Minneapolis is dedicated to building sustainable, energy efficient buildings. The city adopted a policy that requires future municipal buildings or major renovations of buildings, to be Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) Silver Level requirements. LEED creates a set of standards that ensure that a building is environmentally friendly and sustainable; these standards have been in use for more than 15 years across the nation. The standards call for buildings to be constructed in ways that have been proven to reduce the consumption of energy and other natural resources, improve building performance, cost efficiency, and building longevity.
