U.S. Green Building Council Awards Takeda U.S. Home Office LEED Gold Environmental Certification

The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) recognized the Takeda Pharmaceuticals North America, Inc. U.S. corporate Home Office in Deerfield, Ill., with its Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design(R) (LEED) designation at a Gold-level certification in the New Construction category.

The facility, which houses approximately 1,100 Takeda Pharmaceuticals North America and Takeda Global Research & Development Center, Inc. Home Office employees, is the only pharmaceutical office in Illinois to achieve this designation. Takeda is one of only five Gold LEED certified buildings in Illinois, and one of only 205 in the United States.

"Takeda has demonstrated a strong commitment to the green building program – and to the long-term goals of conserving energy and protecting the environment," said Rick Fedrizzi, President, CEO & Founding Chair, USGBC. "The Takeda model is one we hope other industries will follow."

The LEED Green Building Rating System(TM) is the nationally accepted benchmark for evaluating sustainable sites, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere efficiency, material and resource selection and indoor environmental quality.

"Takeda gives serious consideration to the impact we have on the environment in every aspect of our corporate activities, so our facility was built with that in mind," said Mark Booth, president of Takeda Pharmaceuticals North America, Inc. "This achievement is one monumental step in our continued commitment to being a good corporate citizen through responsible environmental practices."
