Italy adopts USA's LEED scheme

Italy
The GBC Italia and the US Green Building Council have signed a memorandum of understanding to create a partnership between the two organisations. Italy are the first European country to adopt the USA's LEED green building standards rating scheme.

President of GBC Italia, Mario Zoccatelli said, "LEED has been very successful in the US in transforming the approach to building design, construction and operation. After reviewing all of the existing green building tools out there, we ultimately chose LEED because of USGBC's history of innovation and its flexible approach."
