Lee Kum Kee, an Asian sauce provider, has announced that its Xinhui Production Base was awarded LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Platinum certification. Lee Kum Kee is the first in the global fermented food industry to receive this certification.

LEED certification is a widely used green building rating system and is a globally recognized symbol of sustainability achievement and leadership. A building must attain a score of 80 or more on a 100-point scale that measures environmental impact to achieve LEED Platinum certification.

“The LEED certification is a direct reflection of who we are as a company, both in our commitment to sustainable practices and providing a safe working environment for our team. It’s an honor to receive this recognition for our Xinhui Production Base,” said Tony Mok, director of global manufacturing for Lee Kum Kee.

The Xinhui Production Base is the largest of the Lee Kum Kee production bases worldwide and features a comprehensive energy efficiency and environmental protection strategy and is equipped with a solar photovoltaic power generation system, geothermal heat pump system, wetland park, and wastewater treatment facilities.
