The EPIC Group announced that it has been awarded LEED Certification, established by the U.S. Green Building Council and verified by the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI) for CIPL Project. LEED is an internationally recognized standard for the design, construction and operation of high-performance green buildings.

"CIPL is the first LEED Certified project for EPIC Group and the first LEED Certified project in Bangladesh and we will continue to drive this green building initiative for all our projects," said Virender Goyal, Managing Director & Country Head, EPIC Group Bangladesh.

CIPL in Dhaka, Bangladesh is the flagship facility of the EPIC Group. This state-of-the-art, air-conditioned factory, spread over 500,000 sq ft, was built for garment manufacturing and finishing and it boasts in-house wet and dry processing, embroidery, printing, and a dedicated wrinkle-free post-cure facility. CIPL achieved LEED certification for energy use, lighting, water and material use as well as incorporating a variety of other sustainable strategies. By using less energy and water, a LEED certified building saves money for families, businesses and taxpayers; reduces greenhouse gas emissions; and contributes to a healthier environment for residents, workers and the larger community.

"CIPL's LEED certification demonstrates tremendous green building leadership," said Rick Fedrizzi, President, CEO & Founding Chair, U.S. Green Building Council. "The urgency of USGBC's mission has challenged the industry to move faster and reach further than ever before, and CIPL of EPIC Group serves as a prime example with just how much we can accomplish."

"LEED certification of CIPL was based on a number of green design and construction features that positively impact the project itself and the broader community. These features include water efficient plumbing systems, energy efficient lighting and Air Conditioning system, sustainable material purchases, healthy indoor working environment for occupants, etc.," said Gunasekaran Raju, Green Building Consultant, Airdesign Engineered Solutions.
