The Leadership and Energy Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System, developed by the US Green Building Council, is a third party certification program designed to support the world wide adoption of sustainable green building. LEED approaches sustainability with recognizing performance in five areas of sustainability: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiencies, material selection and environmental quality.

Bernhardt supports the U.S. Green Building Council and the LEED standards. By achieving a number of certifications, such as GREENGUARD and FSC, Bernhardt offers its customers the ability to work toward achieving LEED credits.
