LEED has different levels of certification for green buildings based on different criteria and total credits and points earned. Credits are given based on:
- Sustainable sites
- Water efficiency
- Energy and atmosphere
- Materials and resources
- Indoor environmental quality
- Innovation and design process
Different certification levels are based on the amount of points a building receives for successful attempts at the six categories.
