Congratulations to our client, OKTA, on its recent LEED silver certification – awarded in recognition of its new office in La Defence, Paris – a single-storey, 950sqm space located the city’s Europlaza Tower.
LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), is the most widely used green building rating system in the world and an international symbol of excellence.
Through design, construction and operations practices that improve environmental and human health, LEED-certified buildings are helping to make the world more sustainable.
OKTA Paris achieved LEED certification for implementing practical and measurable strategies and solutions in areas including sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, and indoor environmental quality.
Speaking about Agilité’s role in the construction project, Galia Minkara, Agilité operations director, explained: “We reused the existing ceiling and carpets, but when it came to construction waste, we collated and audited all output and sent 87% of everything we removed from the site for recycling.”
“LEED is a transformative tool that ensures a building is designed and operated to achieve high performance, improve human health, and protect the environment,” said Peter Templeton, president and CEO, USGBC. “By prioritising sustainability, OKTA Paris is leading the way in their industry and helping USGBC continue towards our goal of green buildings for everyone within this generation.”
Green buildings allow companies to operate more sustainably and give the people inside them a healthier, more comfortable space to work. Certification is proof that buildings are going above and beyond to ensure the space is constructed and operated to the highest level of sustainability.
