  1. And actually, LEED certified buildings may not always conserve energy. See the NYTimes: "Some Buildings Not Living Up to Green Label."

    Part of the issue is that buildings are rated on design, not construction and operation, so a design that looks good but is poorly built will not perform up to intention. Another part of the problem is that no ongoing monitoring is involved, so if a building is not performing up to plan for whatever reason there are no LEED-relevant consequences.
