LEED® Canada-CI for Commercial Interiors (LEED-CI) is a comprehensive, voluntary, market-driven green building rating system for commercial interiors. LEED-CI is an interior design tool used to minimize environmental impacts and maximize occupant comfort and performance of tenant spaces.

LEED-CI addresses performance areas in office, retail, and institutional buildings including:

  • selection of sustainable tenant space;
  • efficiency of water usage;
  • energy performance optimization including lighting and lighting controls;
  • resource utilization for interior building systems and furnishings;
  • indoor environmental quality including comprehensive emissions criteria.

This full-day training session for building tenants and designers provides an in-depth discussion of the LEED-CI credit requirements and certification process.
