The LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification is the most widely used green building rating system in the world, providing a framework to create efficient and cost-saving green buildings.

What is green building?
LEED is certified by the US Green Building Council (USGBC). A project follows LEED standards to ensure a sustainable location, efficient use of resources, clean water, optimal use of energy, minimum waste and innovative building design.
BM Windows JSC's factory, located in Song Than 3 Industrial Park, Thu Dau Mot City in the southern province of Binh Dương, is the only glass and aluminium factory in Viet Nam to achieve LEED certification so far.
BM Windows has the only glass and aluminium factory in Viet Nam that meets LEED standards.
Put into operation in May 2017, the efficiency of the factory's water treatment system is 35 per cent higher than a normal factory. Its automatic lighting control system and special design helps the factory ultilise natural light to save 20 per cent of electricity. Low emission air conditioning systems reduce by 74 per cent the overall thermal transfer value (OTTV). Its roofs, made of solar reflective materials, help cut electricity consumption by 15 per cent.
The BM Windows factory applies the world's leading modern technology from Germany to help maximise production efficiency and protect the environment.
Tran Van Tien, General Manager of BM Windows, said: “This is the pioneering international standard in energy-saving projects and environmental protection. In the current situation of environmental pollution, what we focus on most is the safety the community. LEED is considered one of the sustainable values that BM Windows wants to bring to its customers through its products”.

This pioneering investment in a "green factory" has brought BM Windows products to big projects in Viet Nam such as OneHup Saigon, Friendship Tower, Viettel Headquarters, Diamond Lotus, Vinhomes Grand Park, Kingdom 101, Vinhomes Metropolis, Imperia Hai Phong, Hilton Saigon, The Peak and The MarQ.
Recently, BM Windows has also exported its first shipments to Australia and Myanmar. Opportunities are also opening up for BM Windows products to other demanding markets in Asia and North America.
