LEED Building

Senior Vice President for LEED, Scot Horst join us to talk about how LEED buildings are better for our health.
Every day, 1.7 million square feet of green building space is awarded LEED certification. The U.S. Green Building Council estimates that 4.3 million people live and work in LEED-certified buildings and 6.2 million people enter a LEED-certified building every day.

LEED is the world’s most widely used green building program and here in the U.S., comprehensive state-by-state information is compiled annually on each new LEED project undertaken in a state. A list is then released which highlights those regions that are transforming buildings and communities across the country.

Scot Horst leads all functions related to LEED at the U.S. Green Building Council. His passion is to connect LEED to a new generation of building performance outcomes. Scot is also deeply committed to the global development of LEED. He led the establishment of LEED as a global benchmark in 2009 and organized the LEED International Roundtable in 2010.

Scot sits on the board of the Sustainable Building Alliance in Paris, the Advisory Board of Cradle to Cradle, and the Buildings Retrofit and Finance Steering Committee of the World Economic Forum. He is co-author of the book, "An Integrative Design Guide to Green Building" and speaks widely on LEED and the future of green building.
