LEED® is the nation’s pre-eminent program for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings.

NEIT achieved LEED® certification by incorporating energy use, lighting, water, material use, and a variety of other sustainable strategies into its East Greenwich facility when the college redesigned and remodeled what was once a 265,000-square-foot office building. By using less energy and water, a LEED® certified building saves money for families, businesses and taxpayers; reduces greenhouse gas emissions; and contributes to a healthier environment for residents, workers and the community.

LEED® certification of the East Greenwich campus was based upon a number of green design and construction features. Over 100,000 projects currently participate in the LEED® rating systems, comprising over 8 billion square feet of construction space in all 50 states and 114 countries.
