Sustainability – FIVE Zurich is now LEED Platinum

LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is the world's most widely used green building rating system in the world with a strong focal point on sustainability. Available for virtually all building types, LEED certification provides a framework for healthy, highly efficient, and cost-saving green buildings, which offer environmental, social and governance benefits. 

In short, the mission and vision of the LEED programme is to create a healthier, and sustainability-focused future. The sense of commitment to transforming how buildings are designed, constructed and operated through LEED, with more than 100,000 buildings participating today, is at the forefront of the system's purpose. 

With that said, FIVE Zurich now prides itself as the only LEED Platinum hotel in Switzerland and one of just five hotels in the world to earn Platinum Certification for BD+C and ID+C rating system under LEED v4 with an impressive grading of 84 Points, claiming the second highest score in the world, and the third highest in property size by U.S. Green Building Council, a globally recognised authority for sustainability achievement and leadership.

With this inspiring accomplishment, FIVE has secured a complete LEED Platinum hospitality portfolio -  applying ambition with enhanced operations, FIVE illustrates its commitment to making ‘Sustainability without Compromise on Luxury Living’ central to its future vision.

LEED certified buildings are proven to save money, improve efficiency, lower carbon emissions and create healthier places for people. They are a critical part of addressing the climate crisis, meeting ESG goals, enhancing resilience, and supporting a more environmentally and socially responsible, healthy, and prosperous environment that simultaneously improves the quality of life.

Sustainability at the forefront for FIVE Hotels & Resorts, with FIVE Zurich proudly owning the title of the only LEED Platinum hotel in Switzerland!
