Denver Public Library’s Green Valley Ranch Branch Receives LEED Gold Certification

Green Valley Ranch Branch Library Exterior

Under the City’s commitment to sustainability, the Green Valley Ranch Branch Library is proud to announce that it has been designated to receive Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program.

The Gold Certification award is based on the library’s aggressive efforts to design, build and operate the facility in a sustainable way that helps to protect and enhance the environment. Denver’s commitment to sustainability is embodied in the Greenprint Denver initiatives, driven by a 2007 executive order which requires all buildings renovated or maintained with city funds to be designed, constructed, and operated according to principals outlined in the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED.
