Taipei 101, now the world’s tallest green building with LEED Platinum Certification
And after hours of efforts and sweat being put into making this skyscraper the greenest in the world, the Taipei 101 building has finally been accredited with LEED – EBOM Platinum Certification, breaking three records in the bargain and earning itself the title of the world’s tallest green building! With an approximate area topping 1.6 million square feet, the building set the Tallest Green Building record along with the Largest Green Building and the Most-user Green Building, given that it houses about a 90 tenants! The building sports waste reduction, energy- and water-saving systems and a bunch load of more technology ensuring that its office temperatures, humidity and carbon dioxide levels are all kept under check!
We applaud the effort put into the building of this humongous green example with hopes that the world learns green architecture from the designers and developers of the Taipei 101.
