The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™ is the nationally accepted benchmark
for the design, construction, and operation of high performance green buildings. LEED gives building owners and operators
the tools they need to have an immediate and measurable impact on their buildings’ performance. LEED promotes a whole-building
approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site
development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, and indoor environmental quality.
As a founding member of the USGBC, Armstrong participated in the development of the LEED rating system. Our company incorporated
the LEED criteria in the design and construction of our corporate headquarters building located at our Innovation Center campus
in Lancaster, PA.
