Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is "…a voluntary, consensus-based national rating system for developing high-performance, sustainable buildings. LEED addresses all building types and emphasizes state-of-the-art strategies in five areas: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials and resources selection, and indoor environmental quality", as defined by the U.S. Green Building Council. There are four rating levels (Green, Gold, Silver and Platinum) that may be obtained through the documentation of "points" earned during the design of the building.
United States Alliance Fire Protection has several LEED Accredited Professionals on staff.
Though currently LEED awards few points for fire sprinkler systems, we believe this will change as research continues. In 2009, Factory Mutual Global published a Research Technical Report, The Influence of Risk Factors on Sustainable Development. The outcome of this science has broadened the view of sustainable development and successfully quantified the preemptive contributions of fire sprinklers.
