LEED provides a road map for building our offices to the highest environmental standards

Bloomberg’s Focus On LEED

Bloomberg has attained the highest rating of LEED Platinum for 14 projects and LEED Gold for 12 projects. LEED, or Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design, is a green building certification program that recognizes best-in-class building strategies and practices. In 2015, we completed projects in Sao Paulo, Brazil; Santiago, Chile; Los Angeles, CA; and Arlington, VA. We currently have 9 additional projects pursuing LEED Certification. Below is an analysis we’ve conducted across our LEED portfolio.
