"This acknowledgment confirms that the principles of sustainability are respected during the construction of the building, but also commends the design and the positive impact on the environment."
"As a responsible company, we take care of the community we work in daily. Part of our activities are focused on the preservation of the environment, and that is why we are very proud that the way of building and using our Administrative Building has led to it becoming the first bearer of LEED Platinum certificates in Serbia, as well as the fact that our Logistic Center owns LEED Gold certificate. We will continue to grow responsibly, contribute to the ecological awareness of the narrower and wider local communities, and to regard resources as an endangered nature and society, "says Darko Vukotic, a representative of Lidl Serbia.
