This is a cutting-edge project that utilizes the most advanced green technology in the construction industry, resulting in a LEED Gold level certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design). LEED is an international standard for the development of high-performance green buildings, which takes into account various parameters such as environmental and human health benefits, water conservation, energy efficiency, selection of materials and building solutions to reduce environmental impacts. It is particularly worth mentioning that the Suzhou production base has installed a continuous monitoring system for buildings to ensure energy efficiency; Cover the roof with photovoltaic panels to utilize renewable energy; In addition, it is equipped with a rainwater recovery system to meet the needs of the production base. Not only that, the production base has also obtained the China Green Building Label GBL two-star certification, which is the standard for sustainable development buildings in China and reflects China’s emphasis on green building solutions.
Accurate planning is in line with the sustainable development strategy of the Landage Group, aiming to combine industrial and economic development with the prudent use of resources, while respecting human rights, work, and people.
