LEED Construction Incentives
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, or LEED, is a great way to create sustainable buildings. Riverside has created a program to encourage businesses to pursue LEED-certified designation.
The LEED guidelines were developed in 2000 by the U.S. Green Building Council to standardize green building practices and encourage builders to follow LEED guidelines. Most major retrofit projects can be included in this program using the same criteria; our account management team can help you.
