Toronto LEED Supplement

The CaGBC and the City of Toronto recently released the Toronto LEED Supplement. The purpose of the Supplement is to inform the design community who are familiar with LEED®, or who are interested in pursuing LEED certification, of the areas of similar intent between LEED and the Toronto Green Standard (TGS) and to identify those cases of selected sustainable design elements where the TGS minimum requirements are additional to LEED requirements.
