The new business building of Schneider Electric in Novi Sad, known as InGrid, has been awarded the prestigious Platinum LEED certification, confirming its commitment to sustainability and green construction.
According to the LEED standard, Platinum is the highest level of green building certification. Buildings constructed in accordance with this standard represent the pinnacle of sustainable design, incorporating the most innovative and advanced available green solutions.
InGrid stands out through a range of sustainable approaches, including energy performance that has achieved nearly 50% energy savings compared to standard projects, utilizing renewable energy sources. Thanks to careful site selection in a dense urban area with nearby public services, excellent connectivity to the rest of the city is provided for over 1,000 users, reducing the carbon dioxide impact emitted from personal vehicles. Atmospheric water control has been implemented as the project’s location is designed to manage a significant portion of atmospheric water on-site. Notably, this is not a greenfield investment but a reconstruction and revitalization project.
“The Platinum LEED certificate is confirmation that we firmly stand behind our commitment to sustainable business practices. We aim to be an example for others on how companies can successfully move towards sustainable and responsible operations. This certificate not only affirms our dedication to sustainability but also sets standards for green construction in Serbia. The innovations and dedication of our team have led us to the highest level of certification, confirming our role as leaders in this field,” stated Dragoljub Damljanović, Director of the Schneider Electric Development Center in Novi Sad.
