“Green” or “sustainable” buildings contain main resources such as energy, water and materials more efficiently than buildings that are just built conventionally. LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) was designed and built using strategies aimed at improving performances such as energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts. The system is categorized in five basic areas: sustainable sites, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources, and Indoor environmental quality. In the building industry, there are different type of materials which help LEED system to grow and expand. Leca (Light Expanded Clay Aggregate) is one of this material which improves LEED performance by its main advantages such as lightness, thermal insulation, sound insulation, fire resistance and limited water absorption.
