U.S. Green Building Council, LEED Gold Rated Building

Cushman & Wakefield is committed to protecting the environment and the tenants who work in their buildings. 20 South Clark is a LEED Gold Certified Building. The LEED rating system, as developed by the U.S. Green Building Council or USGBC, is the most widely used third-party verification program for buildings, homes and communities that are designed constructed, maintained and operated for improved environmental and human health performance.

20 South Clark achieved LEED Certification for practical and measurable strategies and solutions aimed at achieving high performance by, improved water efficiency, increased energy efficiency, and the implementation of comprehensive recycling programs. Our other Green initiatives are our policy of high-performance green cleaning, and our commitment to purchasing earth-friendly cleaning products, and our adoption of sustainable maintenance procedures. As a direct result of implementing and making improvements in such Green initiatives, we are proud to announce that 20 South Clark continues to be a LEED Gold Certified Building since 2018!

LEED works for all buildings-from homes to corporate headquarters-at all phases of development. Projects pursuing LEED certificate earn points across several areas that address sustainability issues. Based on the number points achieved, a project then receives one of four LEED rating levels: Certified, Silver, Gold or Platinum.
