The Balboa Park Cultural Partnership announced Wednesday that it had certified the buildings under the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED program — Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.

The latest two buildings to gain recognition for saving energy, reducing waste and water use and other factors were the San Diego Museum of Man and the Japanese Friendship Garden’s Inamori Pavilion.

Jessica Travis, the partnership’s director of sustainability and community relations, said more than 100 volunteers helped fill out the paperwork to confirm the institutions’ progress. The city of San Diego, SDG&E and three paid experts also helped.
