Arkansas Business' first-ever list of buildings that have received Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design certification includes 55 projects around the state. Even more buildings have been certified but are listed with the U.S. Green Building Council as "confidential."

The six projects in the slideshow above are among the most recent to be recognized for meeting LEED standards, which have evolved over the past 12 years to include different requirements depending on the use of the building. There are, for instance, different standards for schools than for restaurants.

According to the Green Building Council, more than 1.6 million SF receive LEED certification each day nationally.
