FMC’s New Headquarters Earns LEED Gold Certification

Kelly Marshall

FMC Corporation‘s commitment to sustainability is proven once more with the recent LEED Gold certification of their global headquarters in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The building boasts energy and water efficiency, superior indoor air quality and was created using sustainable materials. The space was developed alongside Brandywine Realty Trust, owner and developer of the FMC tower. The certification accounts for the company’s 250,000 square feet on nine floors of the tower. Brandywine Realty Trust is also pursing LEED certification of the core and shell of the building.

“Designing an office that’s inviting, collaborative, functional and efficient was a team effort with designers, architects, sustainability engineers, project leaders and many others who contributed their talents to this project,” said Linda Froelich, director of corporate sustainability. “We’re proud to work in a space that is energy and water efficient, provides high-quality air, sources 100 percent renewable energy and has been built with sustainably sourced materials.”

LEED, which stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is a green building design and certification standard that measures building performance and certifies the sustainable aspects of a building. LEED is the most popular and widely used green building rating system globally. Currently there are more than 82,000 LEED buildings located in 162 countries and territories, while Philadelphia is home to 24 LEED Commercial Interior buildings including the FMC Tower.
