The Burlington Performing Arts Centre received LEED® ( Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design ) Gold certification for New Construction from the Canada Green Building Council, CaGBC. The Burlington Performing Arts Centre project is the first city project to achieve LEED certification of any level and the only performing arts centre in Ontario to achieve LEED Gold certification and second in the country.

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a third-party certification program and an internationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings. LEED promotes a holistic approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five key areas of human and environmental health, which includes sustainable site development, water efficiency, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality.
