LEED Gold Certification

LEED promotes a sustainability-oriented approach, recognizing the performance of buildings in key sectors, such as energy and water saving, reduction of CO2 emissions, improvement of the ecological quality of interiors, materials and resources used, design and site choice. Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), the system is based on the allocation of ‘credits’ for each requirement.

The sum of the credits constitutes the certification level: from Basic to Platinum certification. The level obtained by Collegio Einaudi was GOLD.

The Po Section of Collegio Einaudi is the first example of LEED certified renovation in Torino and aims to be a model for other residential realities. For the benefit of the city community, and as expected for obtaining the LEED certification, the result in terms of energy and water consumption was a reduction of 30%.

 The Po Section project – an eco-sustainable and LEED certified university residence model was supported by the Compagnia di San Paolo.
