Why is my project confidential within the USGBC and CaGBC project directories?

People often wonder why their project is listed as confidential within the USGBC and CaGBC project database. The selection to indicate that your project is private is initially made in the registration form in LEED Online. If you indicate “this project is private” it will not be listed in these publicly available LEED project directories. This use of the word private does not indicate that the project is privately held or a private residence but rather that the project details, such as the name and address, should be held confidential. Note that, a private project may not be advertised to the general public as being registered or certified. You can update this selection within the project details in LEED Online at any time.
