         LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. The United States Green Building Council (USGBC) created LEED as a rating system for   green buildin.                                                      

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       


        Green building refers to the design, construction, and operation of buildings in an environmentally friendly way. LEED promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, and indoor environmental quality. The rating system is specific to the type of project being worked on. The rating systems are broken down into points for each type of credit. There are totally four levels of certification, basing on the score achieved under all credits, including Certified, Silver, Gold and Platinum.  

        Both the office building and factory in Marathon-Gexin Electric Shanghai new campus will apply for LEED New Construction Certification. The office building will apply for LEED-NC silver level certification while the factory will go for certified level.

Marathon-Gexin takes it very serious to provide a healthy and safety working environment for our employees and reducing our environment impact to the earth.
