ABU DHABI / WAM

The Environment Agency – Abu Dhabi (EAD) announced on Monday that it was awarded the Leadership in
Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) for Operations and Maintenance (O+M) version 4.1 Certificate by the US Green Building Council (USGBC), the most widely used green buildings classification system globally.
The award was given in recognition of EAD’s outstanding efforts in managing
sustainable, healthy and environmentally friendly buildings and its’ application of sustainability standards in three of its facilities.
The Agency received the LEED Platinum certification for its leadership in the application of energy and environmental protection systems in Operation and Maintenance for its headquarters, as well as Al Wathba Wetland Reserve.
The EAD offices based in Al Ain were certified LEED Gold for their application of energy
and environmental protection systems in Operation and
Maintenance.
The USGBC also acknowledged EAD for its sustainable facility management and
leadership in energy and environmental design, while commending it for fulfilling the necessary certification criteria. These include managing indoor environmental quality, including factors such as air quality, green cleaning materials, pest management and zero tobacco smoke presence. The Agency is also deemed energy efficient due to reductions in electricity use and GHG emission intensity, chilled water consumption, and the numbers for refrigerants used in the three facilities.
