LEED Certification means that products have been certified as “green” (environmentally friendly) by the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, a program developed and implemented by the U.S. Green Building Council.
What does this have to do with artificial turf?
Since artificial turf is a building material rather than a natural product, it falls in a different category than natural turf. However, it can be certified “green” by the Council and earns the user credits as a LEED Certified user.
