LG has designed a building and landscaping that embodies the company’s commitment to sustainability.
Highlights of the Environmental Aspects
of the Project Include:
- World-class green building which will be a showcase to promote environmentally-friendly energy efficiency, water conservation and reduced carbon emission.
- The new building will utilize an 85,000 square foot photovoltaic solar array that will generate over 1,500 MWh of electricity annually.
- Plans to transform the current site by increasing the percentage of green space by more than 50 percent, planting more than 700 new trees – all of which can be found on the Bergen County Native Plant List – and reducing harmful runoff into the Palisades and the Hudson River.
- A series of leading sustainability initiatives including utilizing the EPA GreenScapes program to support run-off and cut energy usage; and adopting the EPA Clean Construction USA Program to help reduce emissions from internal combustion engines used in facility construction and operation.
