With energy efficient lighting, low flow water fixtures, advanced energy management and control systems (EMCS), and a whole host of other sustainable measures, TAIPEI 101 is the world's tallest building with the LEED v4 Platinum recognition.
A landmark supertall skyscraper in Xinyi District, Taipei, Taiwan, the building was the world's tallest in 2004 until it was surpassed by Burj Khalifa in Dubai in 2010.
In 2011, TAIPEI 101 received LEED v2009 Platinum to become the world's tallest and largest green building, and in 2016, it was upgraded to LEED v4 Platinum and became the first supertall building in the world to achieve the top standard.
In August 2017, the building also attained Platinum rating under the LEED for Building Operations and Maintenance (LEED O+M).
LEED is a green building certification program launched by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) with 4 levels: Certified, Silver, Gold, and Platinum. Buildings are rated according to their design, construction, operation, and maintenance.
Taipei 101 is currently hosting the month-long 2017 Smart Trend Exhibition.
