FRANCE: Kering's distribution hub gains LEED certification
Kering's Luxury Goods International distribution centre in Switzerland has gained LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) platinum certification - making it the first luxury hub to achieve this level.
Compared to a standard building in the same place under equivalent climatic conditions, the Sant'Antonino centre is expected to bring savings of around 43% on energy consumption, 56% on potable water and 70% on the total consumption of water.
Kering also has plans to install a photovoltaic system on the roof that will generate around 1,400 MWh of solar energy each year.
"LEED certification of our subsidiary LGI is a great accomplishment, and contributes to the global commitment and work that our brands are doing on a daily basis to reach our Kering sustainability targets," said Marie-Claire Daveu, chief sustainability officer for Kering.
