Munich Re America gains “Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design” (LEED) Platinum certification for their Conference and Fitness Center

Munich Reinsurance America’s commitment to sustainable operations has just been recognized at one of the highest levels by the United States Green Buildings Council (USGBC).  The Munich Re Conference & Fitness Center building on the Princeton campus, with a size of 39,800 square feet, was awarded LEED Platinum Certification for the sustainable manner in which it was recently designed, built and is now being operated. LEED, an acronym for Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design, recognizes best-in-class building strategies and practices. A premier achievement in green building, the award independently validates the means and methods employed by Corporate Facilities on behalf of the organization.

The Platinum Certification in the LEED category of Commercial Interiors, is the highest available. In 2014, Munich Reinsurance America also received LEED Gold Certification in the Existing Building category for the Plaza II facility on the Princeton campus.

  • Sustainable Sites
  • Water Efficiency
  • Energy & Atmosphere
  • Materials & Resources
  • Indoor Environmental Quality
  • Innovation & Design Process
