Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED)

In the international realm, we benchmark our environmental performance with  a very  high standard,  namely the gold level of the Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) Core and Shell certification issued by the U.S. Green Building Council. We are delighted to report that following Shenyang’s Palace 66, the first shopping mall receiving such gold standing on the Mainland, our Parc 66 in Jinan ,  Forum 66 in Shenyang, Center 66 in Wuxi and Riverside 66 in Tianjian,  were also awarded this gold standing. Other Mainland projects under development have attained their relevant gold level of LEED pre-certifications. We will continue to implement sustainable project development and strive for the official gold certifications upon the completion of development.

In Hong Kong, our residential project, 23-39 Blue Pool Road, on Blue Pool Road in Happy Valley also received the Gold Level certificate under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) for Homes from the U.S. Green Building Council. It is thus far the largest project in China to gain the certification, as well as the first project in the world registered under the International Pilot Scheme.
