This report identifies the important factors and the subsequent decisions which lead to identifying and incorporating water-saving strategies and the resulting credits for LEED certification. Furthermore, the report will try to demonstrate how the creation of a LEED’s measurement system, has led to a rise in new water saving technologies. Buildings can obtain certification by achieving LEED credits in categories consisting of: Sustainable Sites, Water Efficiency, Energy and Atmosphere, Materials and Resources, Indoor Environmental Quality and additional points for innovative design and regional priority. Data for the report was gathered through interviews with companies and individuals who had applied water efficiency strategies to meet LEED’s credit requirements.
