Majid Al Futtaim has shared that City Centre Muscat, located in the capital’s Seeb area, has been awarded the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum Certification.
The recognition signifies the highest level of achievement in sustainable building practices within the LEED green building rating system, a globally recognised standard.
In 2021, the Mall of Oman in Muscat also became the world’s biggest mall to have achieved LEED Platinum for Building Design and Construction under New Building Core and Shell.
A total of 20 Majid Al Futtaim malls in the region are now LEED-certified.
The recent LEED Platinum Certifications follow Mall of the Emirates’ recognition earlier this year, positioning it as the largest operational mall globally to receive this certification.
Majid Al Futtaim’s sustainability initiatives contributing to the LEED Platinum status encompass various practices, including water efficiency measures and installing high-efficiency toilet fixtures across all malls, reducing water consumption significantly.
Implemented industry practices also include efficient waste management strategies, such as waste reduction and segregation.
Additionally, integrating efficient lighting systems and ongoing HVAC optimisation earns the malls higher points in the Energy and Atmosphere category, it shared.
Commenting on the LEED Platinum Certifications, Khalifa Bin Braik, CEO of Majid Al Futtaim – Asset Management, said: “As Oman focuses on sustainable growth, Majid Al Futtaim is dedicated to leading the charge toward a more sustainable future. This latest achievement is a testament to our years of hard work and dedication and also a result of our increased focus on sustainability, resulting in Majid Al Futtaim now having 20 LEED-certified malls.
“Our commitment to sustainability is deeply ingrained in our operations, and these LEED Platinum Certifications reaffirm our dedication to providing environmentally responsible shopping experiences for our mall patrons.”
