Merdeka 118 tower receives LEED Platinum certification

KUALA LUMPUR: The Merdeka 118 tower project has been awarded the prestigious Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum certification in the LEED v2009 Core & Shell rating system, marking it as the first mega-tall building in Malaysia to receive this recognition.

LEED certification acknowledges a project's compliance with the criteria outlined in the LEED rating system, established and upheld by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). The certification programme is overseen by Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI).

PNB Merdeka Ventures Sdn Bhd (PNBMV), a wholly owned subsidiary of Permodalan Nasional Bhd, is the owner of and builder of Merdeka 118. At a towering height of 678.9 meters, Merdeka 118 stands as Southeast Asia's tallest tower and the world's second tallest.

PNBMV chief executive officer Tengku Datuk Ab. Aziz Tengku Mahmud said the LEED Platinum certification marks the first milestone in Merdeka 118's journey to become Malaysia's first triple-green platinum rated mega-tall building.

“Once Merdeka 118 tower receives all its platinum certifications, it will set the highest sustainability standards not only in Malaysia but also internationally, reinforcing its iconic status,” he said in a statement.

Merdeka 118 is targeting Platinum certification from Green Real Estate (GreenRE) and Green Building Index (GBI). It is also in line to obtain WELL certification from the International WELL Building Institute Asia Pacific supporting the wellbeing of the tenants and the wider community.
