Technopolis has obtained gold-level Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certificates for its new buildings in Finland and Lithuania.
Technopolis, a developer and operator of a chain of 20 smart business parks in the Nordic-Baltic region, has invested strongly in energy and water efficiency, according to Good News Finland. In the new Yliopistonrinne buildings in Tampere, Finland, solar panels installed on the roof produce 22,000 kWh of renewable energy annually.
Meanwhile, the company’s Delta buildings in Vilnius received the highest score in the LEED water efficiency category, due to their state-of-the-art water-saving fixtures.
“We aim to offer added value to both our customers and investors through sustainable efficiency,” says Johanna Kivelä, sustainability manager at Technopolis. “We have systematically utilized building ratings to develop eco-efficiency of our buildings. Internationally recognized third-party certifications demonstrate the quality of our work.”
LEED is the international standard of excellence in green building. Currently, there are almost 90,000 LEED projects in 164 countries and territories. Technopolis has 27 LEED-certified properties, which represents more than 40 percent of its assets measured by gross area.
