USGBC’s annual list of the Top 10 Countries and Regions for LEED is out. Around the world, LEED is helping companies and communities create healthier, more sustainable spaces. This year's leaders represent nearly 7,800 certified buildings and more than 210 million gross square meters of space.

The list ranks countries and regions in terms of cumulative LEED-certified gross square meters as of Dec. 31, 2018. Recent research shows green building will continue growing through 2021. Client demand remains the top reason to build green in the U.S., and occupant health and well-being emerged as the top social factor. Through LEED, USGBC pushes the market toward higher-performing buildings that also improve quality of life.
