LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is an internationally recognized certification system for the sustainability and quality of buildings. This certificate provides independent confirmation that the building has been designed and built in a way that enhances its performance in all relevant areas. It is also a world-renowned symbol of success and progress in environmental sustainability.

LEED-certified buildings are characterized by being highly energy efficient and economical. However, the way they affect people is of paramount importance. LEED not only evaluates the quality of buildings but most importantly also provides a framework for designing buildings that are environmentally friendly and serve as a pleasant and healthy place to work and live in.

Work is where we spend most of our time and it is therefore extremely important that it becomes a place which supports our health and well-being.

Why LEED?

Among other things, LEED certification helps us to demonstrate our philosophy. It proves that we adhere to our goal of building responsibly, sustainably and with a strong emphasis on people’s needs. Buildings with this certification represent a great investment due to their lasting value. In addition, they are much more attractive to both domestic and foreign investors, who can be sure that the building meets the same uncompromising standards as the greenest buildings all over the world.
