LG Electronics has become the first company in the region to receive LEED Gold for multiple buildings and warehouses.

The company was awarded the certification for the LG building facilities in the Jebel Ali Free Zone after demonstrating savings of 22% in energy, 32% in potable water and a 92% diversion of construction waste from landfills.

The LG building integrates energy-conservation measures through its building envelope insulation and efficient AC units, fans and motors, PV panels and LED lighting. It also employed building finishes with low VOC paints, coatings, adhesives and sealants.

"Beyond producing energy-efficient products, LG is looking to play a leading role in reducing its carbon footprint and act as a corporate model. We believe responsible companies must contribute to sustainable growth by minimising the environmental impact caused by their business activities. The LEED Gold Certification is an acknowledgement of our efforts," said H.S. Paik, president of LG Electronics Gulf FZE.
