Lansdowne is the first neighbourhood in Canada to achieve LEED Stage 3 Built Project Silver certification.

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a rating system devised by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) to evaluate the environmental performance of a building and encourage market transformation toward sustainable design.

That was a highlight in an update received Tuesday by the city's Environment and Climate Protection Committee.
