The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, or LEED, is the most widely used green building rating system in the world. It is acknowledged as a symbol of sustainability achievement and leadership. A LEED certification means that a building is designed and built to improve its performance in energy and water efficiency, carbon dioxide emissions reductions, improved indoor air quality, and resource stewardship. The P&G facility incorporates energy saving features, such as the use of roof skylights minimizing use of LED lighting during the day; and programmed ventilation utilizing 50% energy usage during the colder times of the day.
