LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), is the most widely used green building rating system in the world.

Gold certification was awarded for the building's design, construction, and use practices, which are measured across criteria including water conservation, energy efficiency, waste and resource management, and indoor environmental quality.

"As one of the country's leading homebuilders, we know firsthand what it takes to create spaces that optimize health and well-being. We've designed our headquarters with these same priorities," said Bryan Smith, Chief Operating Officer of AMH. "Through mindful building and operations practices, we maintain a workplace that supports, inspires, and generates pride in our world-class talent."

This certification represents a milestone in the company's sustainability journey, affirming AMH's continued commitment to responsible environmental practices.
