EDR Linkages to the LEED® Rating System
The goal of these webpages is to provide a portal for accessing
EDR resources through the framework of the LEED rating system.
These EDR webpages are organized to serve as a roadmap for design
teams interested in learning more about sustainable practices that
are consistent with LEED credits. EDR-related references such as
on-line tools, case studies, design briefs, and design guidelines
are provided for the six major LEED categories. Requirements,
strategies, and helpful hints for each LEED credit also are
The LEED Green Building Rating System™ for New Commercial and
Major Renovation (LEED-NC v2.2) provides a set of performance

EDR contains a vast database of energy efficient design
practices that relate directly to meeting the intent of LEED as
well as achieving specific credit requirements.
The majority of EDR resources support successful achievement of
LEED's Energy and Atmosphere credits through the promotion of
energy efficiency. Other EDR tools assist or supplement other LEED
credits through the application of integrated and sustainable
design and construction practices.
