How big is the green building business? The U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program recently certified its 10,000th commercial building, and LEED-certified floor area is approaching 2 billion square feet. The newly-renovated Empire State Building has achieved LEED Gold certification. Green building is even bigger in Europe, where over 200,000 buildings have Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) certified ratings.
