Green building certification has been part of the environmental landscape in many countries worldwide for decades. Even with the use of programs like BREEAM in the UK, international LEED consulting and accreditation is on the rise, as the US-devised LEED certification is increasingly becoming popular in other countries. LEED is becoming an internationally-recognized standard for green building and green building maintenance, and environmental concerns are a major focus for dozens of other countries outside of North America. Is your facility in London – or Paris or Brussels – keeping up with LEED standards?
Owners of US-based businesses that build and/or operate facilities internationally – and who want to ensure their facilities are or remain LEED certified – have a unique set of needs, questions and international regulations to consider.
Our LEED-APs are available to travel internationally to perform LEED consulting and audits, maintenance consulting seminars, and USGBC training for your facility’s occupants. A few of the countries we frequent include:
Our professionals are skilled in the laws and customs of a variety of countries, and are adept at finding solutions for managing the “red tape” that often comes with doing business internationally.
The process starts with a comprehensive energy and waste audit, which provides the data you need for continued LEED certification. We analyze structures for weatherization and efficiency improvement, help collect data on cleaning performance, monitor energy management and assess waste management.
We will then work with you to find recommendations for improving any deficient areas. Our LEED-APs also provide systematic LEED audits of existing structures to verify that waste diversion figures are correct, materials and resources are still in line with estimates, and ensure that correct purchasing protocols are in force.
GreenEfficient®’s international LEED audits will ensure that your facility is always running efficiently, is compliant with international environmental laws, and maintains the coveted LEED certification.
