KUWAIT, May 3 (KUNA) — Kuwait Petrochemical Industries Company (PIC) was granted the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) gold certificate from the US Green Building Council, PIC CEO Mohammad Al-Farhoud announced Tuesday.
The certificate was given to the company’s administration building; becoming the first existing building to be awarded this certificate in Kuwait, Al-Farhoud said in statement.
Obtaining the certificate came from the company’s application of an initiative to protect the environment and community care, for the benefit of workers and environmental protection, he said.
The LEED is one of the most popular green building certification programs, developed by the non-profit US Green Building Council (USGBC).
It includes a set of rating systems for the design, construction, operation and maintenance of green buildings, homes and neighborhoods that aims to help building owners and operators be environmentally-responsible and use resources efficiently.
Founded in 1963, PIC is the first chemical fertilizer complex of its kind in the region. Today, PIC is a subsidiary of the Kuwait Petroleum Corporation (KPC) and is a petrochemical industry leader in Kuwait and throughout the Middle East; and a growing leader worldwide. (end) osj.ss
