LEED Silver Certification for CooperVision

CooperVision’s New York global packaging and distribution centre has earned the prestigious LEED Silver certification for its environmentally conscious design and operation. The facility, which measures over 18,500m2, processes and ships nearly one billion contact lenses each year to customers around the world.

The United States Green Building Council’s LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) program is the most widely used green building rating system in the world and an international symbol of excellence in sustainable design, construction, and operations. LEED projects earn points by adhering to prerequisites and credits across nine measurements for building excellence, from integrative design to human health to material use.

CooperVision’s packaging and distribution centre excelled in LEED evaluation categories including materials and resources, indoor environmental quality, and water efficiency. It also received additional innovation credits for diverting waste from landfills, as well as its organic composting program.

Additionally, it earned regional priority credits based on its LED lamp replacement project in its warehouse and offices, a site management policy and improvement plan for its green spaces, and renewable energy credits. The facility is powered by 100% renewable energy.

Other LEED-certified CooperVision sites include the company’s manufacturing facilities, also in New York state, in Puerto Rico, and Costa Rica, and its distribution centre in Spain.
