First LEED Commercial Interior Platinum certificate in Poland for Skanska office in Atrium 1, Warsaw

Award: Outstanding Non-Business Achievement of the Year, CEE
Name of Achievement: First LEED Commercial Interior Platinum certificate in Poland for Skanska office in Atrium 1, Warsaw
Achiever (company name): Skanska Property Poland
Please write information about the achievement, describing the context of the achievement and it’s results or impact: The LEED Commercial Interior certificate focuses on both new and existing office space. The difference between LEED CI and the standard LEED Core&Shell which focuses on entire buildings is the attention paid to an office's fit-out. LEED CI certification requirements may include, for example, furniture made from recycled materials, finishing produced from biodegradable components or use of paint with a low level of volatile organic compounds. LEED CI signals that employers care about the prestige of being “eco”. Office tenants and building owners in the CEE region used to very rarely apply for LEED CI. According to the US Green Building Council, the number of certificates in the CEE region can be counted on the fingers of two hands. In Poland, there are ten and they include all of the new office space where Skanska’s local units operate. The Warsaw’s office is the only one in Poland certificated in the highest available, Platinum level.
