Marsh & McLennan Companies, Inc. (NYSE: MMC), a global professional services firm providing advice and solutions in risk, strategy and human capital, announced today that LEED Gold certification has been awarded to its Phoenix, Arizona, office, and Silver certification has been awarded to its office in Morristown, New Jersey. LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is the U.S. Green Building Council's certification system for the design, construction and operation of green buildings.
These LEED certifications bring the total for the Company’s real estate portfolio to five awards, including four Gold certifications and one Silver certification.
"Marsh & McLennan Companies has always placed value in providing comfortable, healthy workplaces for its employees, and has established a firm commitment to pairing this core principle with the creation of sustainable spaces that better serve the environment,” said Elizabeth Barry, Chief Sustainability Officer, Marsh & McLennan Companies.
The Company’s Marsh and Mercer subsidiaries are co-located within the Phoenix LEED-certified building at 2325 East Camelback Road, where 180 employees occupy approximately 37,000 square feet of the 11-story building. The Company’s examination of lighting power, water conservation and energy, and its use of construction materials and furniture with high levels of recycled content, much extracted regionally or manufactured locally, resulted in a space that is reflective of Marsh & McLennan Companies’ culture and business, and friendly to the environment.
The Company’s office at 445 South Street in Morristown, New Jersey, which houses 240 employees from Marsh & McLennan Companies subsidiaries Marsh, Mercer and Guy Carpenter, was awarded the Silver LEED distinction, after the 54,376 square foot space was reconditioned to enhance energy optimization, thermal comfort and the use of recycled content, including low-emitting materials for better air quality.
Marsh & McLennan Companies is committed to reducing its environmental impact by continuing to create environmentally friendly spaces for its global workforce. In addition to incorporating sustainable practices in its own operations, Marsh & McLennan Companies offers an array of environmental risk management solutions and services to assist its clients in analyzing, reducing and managing their own environmental impact.
Marsh & McLennan Companies’ 2011 Corporate Citizenship Update includes additional information on the firm’s environmental sustainability achievements and activities.
