Jeff Howell, Esq., a LEED® Accredited Professional and Fidelity National Financial's National Director of Sustainable Products stated that, "The three key components of our report will confirm certification of projects under LEED that the project points earned towards LEED certification were awarded by the Green Building Certification Institute, and that there is no registered challenge to the certification.
