#LEED & @USGBC soar to new heights with 5 iconic skyscrapers from all over the world

TAIPEI 101 became the tallest LEED certified building in the world and a industry leader in green building when it received LEED Platinum certification for LEED for Existing Buildings: Operation and Maintenance in 2011. A model for resiliency, the building was designed to withstand typhoons and earthquakes. Green building practices include energy efficient retrofit projects that have generated impressive results, including an annual reduction in energy consumption by 33.41 million kWh, cost savings of more than US$2 million per year and savings of about 28 million liters of potable water annually. These projects have ensured the building's leadership in the green building sector: the ENERGY STAR® database reported that TAIPEI 101 ranks in the top 30% of high-rise office buildings in the world.
