(WLTX) -  The Holiday Inn & Suites Columbia Airport is the first LEED hotel in South Carolina.

LEED stands for Leadership in Energy, Environment and Design.

The hotel hosted a tour Tuesday for Richland and Lexington Counties and the City of Columbia to see how their facility is not only going green, but also leading to a healthier environment for the community. 

The LEED gold certification rating is for buildings that include geothermal heat and air conditioning systems, high efficiency windows and Energy Star appliances.
