There are currently over 1,571 LEED certified warehouses and distribution centers around the world totaling 568,648,197 gross square feet of space. While the majority of these projects are owned by investors and corporations, there are also projects owned by federal state and local governments, higher education and non-profit organizations. In 2013, LEED released guidance specific to this space type to support how it addressed key topics including commissioning and high process loads, materials diversion, water use and more. This work has been further refined in LEED v4.1
