The plan would involve a new LEED certification specifically for the justice sector (LEED for Justice). One example of the "green justice" movement is the Seattle Justice Center (pictured above and completed in 2002) which earned an LEED-NC silver certification for Eco-friendly design elements like its green roof and water harvesting system. This new initiative by the AAJ hopes to turn sites such as the Seattle Justice Center into shining early examples of an emerging trend in government building.
