Milan among the top 5 cities in Europe for number of sustainable

News, Appointments — 18 March 2022

Along with Madrid, Stockholm, Frankfurt and Istanbul, Milan boasts the highest number of buildings that meet the international LEED standard.

Milan, Madrid, Stockholm, Frankfurt and Istanbul. These are the five European cities that can boast the highest number of buildings designed according to the LEED international standard: the certification developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) attesting to a building's eco-compatibility.

LEED, which stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is a voluntary certification programme that can be applied to any type of building (both commercial and residential) and covers the building's entire life cycle, from design to construction.

The city of Milan has more than 80 LEED-certified buildings that help reduce carbon emissions and provide healthier environments for people to live and work in. In addition, there are another 130 projects under development in the city today that plan to pursue the same goal.
According to GBCI's rationale: "In Milan, green buildings are a key solution to reverse the sector's carbon footprint. From hotels and offices to schools and flats, Milan's work with LEED sets an example for Europe and demonstrates that better buildings can create a better quality of life".

Talking about LEED certification, Valcucine presents "Sustainability beyond Space and Time" a series of appointments, before, during and after the Milan Design Week (6-12 June) 2022, to affirm the company's constant commitment to sustainable production and to celebrate the new LEED v4.1 mapping.

The events include an educational tour involving some of the main LEED certified buildings, both present and future, built by important architectural firms in Milan.
