Nokian Tyres’ US plant awarded LEED v4 Silver certification

Nokian Tyres’ US plant’s production building has been awarded LEED v4 Silver certification for green building leadership.

The plant, opened a year ago, was given LEED v4 Silver certification due to a wide range of sustainable elements, including:

  • Smart building automation designed to save energy
  • Eco-friendly building materials
  • Efficient water and waste management systems
  • Electric vehicle charging stations in the parking lot
  • Renewable energy generation via onsite solar panels. The panels generate three megawatts of solar energy when working under direct sunlight

“We are honoured to receive LEED v4 Silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council, which affirms Nokian Tyres’ leadership in sustainability,” says Adrian Kaczmarczyk, SVP, Supply Operations.

LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is the most widely used green building program in the world. Buildings with LEED certification use less energy and water, avoid waste, have improved indoor air quality, and create less environmental burden on their community.
