Illinois, Colorado and Maryland have grabbed the top three spots on the U.S. Green Building Council’s list of states with the most LEED projects. According to a press release from the Council, the analysis ranked states in terms of square feet of LEED space per resident. “The per-capita list highlights states throughout the country that are making significant strides in sustainable building design, construction and transformation. LEED-certified spaces use less energy and water resources, save money for families, businesses and taxpayers, reduce carbon emissions and create a healthier environment for residents, workers and the larger community,” explains the release. States new to the list include Georgia and Arizona.
