LEED-CI
 

LEED for Commercial Interiors is the green benchmark for the tenant improvement market. It is the recognized system for certifying highperformance green interiors that are healthy, productive places to work; are less costly to operate and maintain; and have a reduced environmental footprint. LEED for Commercial Interiors gives the power to make sustainable choices to tenants and designers, who do not always have control over whole building operations.

The use of RJones products will allow for the following USGBC LEED-CI points to be earned.
