Minto and LEED®

Established by the Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC), Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)® is an internationally recognized third party verification program for sustainable building and energy performance.

Through the pursuit of LEED® certification, a building or home undergoes a holistic examination of its performance in five key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water use efficiency, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality. By demonstrating excellence in each of these categories, the home or building has been acknowledged as a healthier, better building that will provide value to homeowners.

Minto is committed to achieving a minimum of LEED® Silver certification on all of our new high-rise developments. Since 2009, Minto has certified over 1,400 units under various LEED® programs. Minto also has the highest number of LEED® certified residential projects in Toronto, including MintoMidtown – North America’s largest condominium to achieve LEED® Gold certification.
