LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is an ecology-oriented building certification program
run under the auspices of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). LEED concentrates its efforts on improving
performance across five key areas of environmental and human health: energy efficiency, indoor environmental
quality, materials selection, sustainable site development and water savings.
LEED is a nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high-performance green
buildings and provides building owners and operators with the tools they need to have an immediate and
measurable impact on their buildings' performance.
On September 23, 2010, ATRIA Corporate Center achieved the LEED for Existing Building: Operations and Maintenance designation. Our LEED certification process resulted in several significant benefits, including water use reduction, decreased energy consumption, enhanced indoor environmental quality and implementation of high-performance cleaning programs and use of sustainable cleaning and paper products. Numerous “Green” operations and maintenance policies have been implemented to improve operational efficiencies and lower operating expenses, while minimizing the Building’s impact on the environment. See the individual Sections throughout this website for more detailed information on each topic including Commuting & Transportation, Restrooms, Energy & Environmental Conservation, Janitorial, Pest Control, Recycling & Trash and Personal Appliances.
