WCNY Public Media is proud to announce it was awarded with the highest certification level achievable in Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED)- LEED® Platinum certification by the U.S. Green Building Council. WCNY is the only PBS affiliate to earn LEED® Platinum status.
To celebrate the certification, WCNY hosted a brief award presentation at the Broadcast and Education Center located at 415 W. Fayette St. in Syracuse on Oct. 29. Rick Fredrizzi, CEO and Founding Chairman of the U.S. Green Building Council delivered remarks.
LEED® is transforming the way we think about how buildings and communities are designed, constructed, maintained and operated across the globe. Of the 25,820 certified buildings in the world, there are only 809 LEED-Platinum buildings with only 42 of those buildings existing in the state of New York. WCNY now joins an elite group of the top three percent of organizations internationally who have achieved this status.
