Win Sing - Xinyi met the standards of the Green Building Council in the categories of environment quality, water conservation design, recycling, energy conservation design, and sustainable foundation design. This special honor also represents a great achievement of Taiwan’s construction industry in creating win-win scenarios between society, economy, and the environment. The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification bears witness to Win Sing’s efforts and achievements in economic and environmental development, employee care, and product responsibility, allowing the Win Sing Group to come even closer to its goal of fulfilling corporate social responsibility.
LEED is a market-oriented voluntary evaluation system formulated by the U.S. Green Building Council to define “high-performance green buildings”. It is used to encourage the development and implementation of sustainable buildings, and provide the industry with a guideline for designing healthier, greener and more energy-efficient buildings. LEED has become the green building assessment criteria recognized by all U.S. states, with more and more local governments requiring public constructions to obtain LEED certification. In recent years, the system has also been adopted by other developed countries around the world (there are LEED cases in over 120 countries), and even used as a model for countries establishing their own green building assessment systems. LEED can drive relevant industries, including energy-saving eco-friendly building materials, recycled eco-friendly materials, healthy building materials, energy-saving air conditioning equipment, energy-saving lighting equipment, energy monitoring equipment, water recycling systems, wastewater purification equipment, water-saving irrigation equipment, and green roof systems, bringing massive business opportunities to the market, and receiving widespread attention from major companies. Taiwan currently has about 20 completed or ongoing LEED cases. Most of these cases are high-tech factory office buildings, followed by commercial offices, residences, server rooms, and hotels.
