Green example: sustainable campus with LEED Platinum Certification


A while ago, these gorgeous green roofs were installed on this business campus in the United States. Sempergreen supplied the Sedum-mix blankets for this ambitious project.

A while ago, these gorgeous green roofs were installed on the multi-level, 350,000-square-foot campus of LG Electronics Headquarters in Englewood Cliffs, NJ. Sempergreen supplied the Sedum-mix blankets for this ambitious project, which provides office space to around 1,000 employees of LG Electronics.

LEED Platinum Certification

This world-class building doesn’t only feature a sustainable Sedum roof, but solar panels, five wetlands, a retention pond and energy efficient building systems as well. It has come to no surprise, therefore, that the project has earned a LEED Platinum certification. This is in full alignment with LG’s long term goals for sustainability management.

Sedum Roof Benefits

Sedum roofs are a simple, quick and low maintenance way to give a positive boost to the local environment. The Sedum plants absorb CO2 & particulate matter, retain stormwater and increase the biodiversity in the area. They are good for humans too. Being surrounded by greenery improves their well-being and performance.
