Girl Scouts Go Platinum

Congratulations to The Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay Council, whose Science and Technology Lodge in Hockessin, DE, has been awarded the platinum certification for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED). It is the first building in Delaware to attain this top rating from the U.S. Green Building Council.

Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council, the LEED rating system is an internationally recognized green building certification system that verifies that a facility was designed and built to improve performance in energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, stewardship of resources and sensitivity to the impact of resources on the environment.
