Diageo’s Connecticut office has been awarded the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Silver certification by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). The Norwalk property is the fourth of Diageo’s buildings in North America to be LEED-certified, joining the company’s Chicago and New York offices, and a facility in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The LEED rating system, developed by the USGBC, is the foremost program for buildings, homes and communities that are designed, constructed, maintained and operated for improved environmental and human health performance. “Taking the steps that led to LEED certification was the right thing to do for the environment, and also for our business. Those initiatives enable us to save resources, and also make our employees proud to work in an environmentally-friendly building,” said John Longo, Director of Corporate Real Estate for Diageo North America.
