StonePly Stone Panels and LEED Certification

There are several reasons to go green:

  • Several government incentives
  • Get recognized by your community as a participant in the LEED program
  • Marketing through the LEED website
  • Satisfaction of helping the environment


There are many credits and categories a building must qualify for to receive a LEED certificate.  A committee decides whether or not you can receive this certificate.  Generally speaking, you must receive 26 out of 69 credits to receive the lowest LEED certificate.  The certificates are (in order from lowest to highest achievement):  certified, silver, gold, and platinum.
