Nike’s largest distribution in Asia, the Logistics Center building in Taicang, China, achieved LEED Platinum certification in 2011 and remains to be the model for other companies to follow. It is the first LEED Platinum warehouse in the country which is valued at $19 billion.
The warehouse uses 200,000 sqm space to save more than 4,400,000 kw of yearly power consumption through its energy saving lighting, on-site solar heating system and large access to natural light, just to name a few. These energy saving facilities are expected to reduce CO2 emissions by 4,200 tons annually – it even completed with a real-time display of the power saved to date.
