LEED, Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design, is a green building certification program developed in the US. Although Japanese counterpart CASBEE has been more popular in Japan since its establishment in 2002, the number of LEED certificated building is increasing in the last few years. Both programs have own benefits to pursue, but the main goal is the same: making society more sustainable. It is up to an owner’s marketing strategy and/or principle which program, or both programs, to carry out. Izumi CONSULTING Inc. earned credibility from developers, designers, engineers and reviewers, consulting 68 projects (as of February 2015) out of 288 CASBEE for Building certified*5 projects (as of 3rd July 2015, www.ibec.or.jp). It hires professionals with wide range of backgrounds – architects, building services engineers, energy analysts and environmental advisors including CASBEE APs and LEED APs. Most importantly, we are passionate about making buildings more comfortable, sustainable and valuable. CASBEE or LEED, our philosophy remains the same when we work on. LEED consulting is relatively a new business in Japan, and our firm is one of the few to provide the services. With the deep knowledge of sustainability, built environment and the construction business in Japan, we are willing to support a project team to reach its sustainability goal successfully.
