Desaru Coast Convention Centre has received a LEED certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™ encourages and accelerates global adoption of sustainable green building and development practices through the creation and implementation of universally understood and accepted tools and performance criteria.
The official project’s factsheet by the USGBC is available here.
Desaru Coast Convention Center is the only convention centre facility in Malaysia to be awarded LEED Certification.
Dr Stellios, NEAPOLI’s CEO said “We are honoured to be the green building consultants for Desaru Coast tourism developments that have included among others Westin Desaru Resort, Hard Rock Hotel Desaru and One&Only Desaru. The LEED certification of Desaru Coast Convention Centre recognises the sustainability goals that have been integral to the Desaru Coast and continue to guide all of the Hotels and Resorts at the region.”
The average monthly environmental impact of this commitment by Desaru Coast on this Convention centre is to generate more than 15,000 kg of CO2 offset, the equivalent of planting more than 2,100 trees.
