The Moncini company pays particular attention to the choice of suppliers and collaborators, taking into account the LEED certification system. The LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification system is a standard applied in over 100 countries around the world, developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), a non-profit association that promotes and provides a global approach to sustainability, recognizing virtuous performance in key areas of human and environmental health.
The organization that defines and promotes the LEED standard is the US Green Building Council, a non-profit association founded in 1993 which today has more than 20,000 members. In addition to a “technical” role, the USGBC also has the task of informing, raising awareness and guiding the community towards eco-sustainable construction. The GBC Italia, thanks to a structure very similar to the American GBC and to the excellent relations with it, carries out the same functions on a national scale, now has more than 400 members and presented the LEED Italy protocol on April 14, 2010. LEED is a voluntary and consensus-based system for the design, construction and management of sustainable, high-performance buildings that is developing more and more internationally; it can be used on any type of building and promotes an integrated design system that concerns the entire building.
The system is based on the allocation of credits for each of the requirements that characterize the sustainability of the building. The obtained certification level derives from the sum of the credits.
