Italy is now home to 297 LEED-certified and registered projects, according to LEED in Motion: Italy, a new report released by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) at the Greenbuild Europe & the Mediterranean Conference and Expo.
LEED in Motion: Italy is the latest in a series of reports from USGBC designed to provide a holistic snapshot of the green building movement in international markets.
“As we bring together the green building community in Europe, it is the perfect time to celebrate the growth of LEED in Italy,” said Rick Fedrizzi, CEO and founding chair, USGBC. “Italy’s LEED-certified museums, university buildings, 400 year-old villas and schools show that green buildings can be majestic and old, and part of the distinctive landscape of historic communities. At the same time, Italy’s new design-forward skyscrapers are testaments to the sustainability innovations and revolutionary breakthroughs that are being ushered in through LEED.”
