        Companies are finding that customers embrace retailers that have proven environmental stewardship. Retailers are focusing more and more on sustainability to help differentiate their brands, performance and strategies. Increasingly, companies recognize that stepping up to this challenge will require implementing meaningful corporate social responsibility plans and working toward energy efficiency, water savings, increased resilience, reduced emissions and net zero and waste strategies.

        Through LEED certification, building projects receive an internationally recognizable, third-party verification that shows the world that a company means business regarding sustainability.

        • Health: Employees and customers of LEED-certified retail locations benefit from spaces designed to maximize indoor fresh air and minimize exposure to airborne toxins and pollutants.
        • Savings: LEED stores operate with lower operating costs. On average, the life-cycle savings amounting to 20 percent of total construction costs represents a ten- fold payback on the upfront investment.
        • Responsibility: LEED certification sends a powerful message about a company’s values and priorities. By using LEED, retailers actively demonstrate to their employees and customers that they care about human health, community resilience and environmental protection.
        • Value: LEED-certified retail spaces attract and retain more customers than non-certified comparable spaces. LEED spaces also report higher sales and operate with lower overhead costs.
        • Brand loyalty: LEED certification sends a powerful message about a company’s values and improve overall brand experience and increase brand loyalty
        • Verification: The LEED plaque on the wall sends the message that you care about your customers and employees and that a third party has verified the sustainability and health aspects of your space. Third-party validation helps guarantee that each project saves energy, water and other resources, reducing overall environmental impact. No cutting corners.
