Citi trumpets "green" building programme

30 May 2008  |  2401 views  |  0 Source: Citi

As part of its commitment to address global climate change, Citi announced that it is the first company to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) pre-certification for a retail commercial interior prototype through a pilot U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) program.

New CitiFinancial branches in Austin, Texas, and Flint, Mich., and the Citibank financial center in Warrington, Penn., are the first Citi branches to be certified in this pilot program. An additional 27 CitiFinancial and Citibank branches were designed with the same features and are in the process of pursuing LEED certification.

"This is part of our approach to embed sustainable business practices throughout our operations - from our buildings to the supply chain to information technology," said Kevin Kessinger, Chief Operations & Technology Officer. "For Citi, green business is good business. It is an important part of being a responsible corporate citizen and operating the business efficiently."

The USGBC Portfolio Program, currently in pilot phase, focuses on the permanent integration of green building and operational measures - portfolio-wide - into the standard business practices of companies and organizations. The Portfolio Program recognizes market leaders who have committed to and achieved high levels of LEED certification within their portfolio.
