We’ve judged this building (3301 Massachusetts Ave NW) previously but I just noticed that it is now LEED certified. Is it a big deal?

LEED Certified means:

“LEED is an internationally recognized green building certification system, providing third-party verification that a building or community was designed and built using strategies aimed at improving performance across all the metrics that matter most: energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts.”
