Torre Oriente, managed by CBRE and property of Union Investment, has just won the LEED Gold certification, one of the most renowned international certifications that assesses the sustainability of buildings from the design to construction, operation and maintenance. This is the first certification obtained in Portugal in the category of ‘Existing Buildings’.

The building is part of the CBRE’s international program Premier Property, a building management concept which priorities are the attention to detail and the quality of service, giving Torre Oriente occupiers or visitors a 5-star hotel feeling. The advisory for this certification was done by CBRE, undertaking the necessary adjustments in procedures, allowing the building to become more sustainable.

Our bet in the transformation of Torre Oriente translates into very positive results for both tenants and visitors but, also, as this certification reveals, for the environment. Torre Oriente is the first building to obtain LEED Gold certification in the category of Existing Building and the fourth building with LEED certification in Lisbon, something that makes us proud and keep us motivated to do more and better regarding sustainability and energy management.

Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council, the LEED program is as a framework that identifies, implements and assesses the sustainability of buildings from design to construction, operation and maintenance of buildings and neighbourhoods, serving as a guiding tool and evaluation mechanism in this field. The rating system implemented by LEED targets commercial, institutional and residential buildings.

Torre Oriente is the first Premier Property in Portugal, a CBRE international program comprising buildings such as City Point, in London, Tour First, in Paris, The Edge, in Amsterdam and Shanghai Tour, in China. Since the beginning of the program in Torre Oriente, CBRE was responsible for the refurbishment of the main lobby and parking access as well as the building’s rebranding.
