The EPB building downtown has been awarded LEED certification by the U.S. Green Building Council, according to a news release from the EPB.

In the release, the EPB said theirs is the city’s first existing building to be so certified.

“LEED Certification goes beyond earning a plaque,” EPB President and CEO Harold DePriest said. “It demonstrates how people can work together toward a common goal, improving quality of life while creating efficient, sustainable work places.”

The release said this achievement results from dozens of people representing 26 organizations who have worked together for a workplace that is “more energy efficient, less polluting and compliant with environmental standards.”
