Four offices of the US-based life insurance company MetLife have received LEED certification for existing buildings from US Green Building Council (USGBC).

The company’s Bridgewater, Oriskany and Somerset sites earned gold certifications while the Aurora office earned a silver certification, the company said.

The buildings’ operations and maintenance practices, such as water efficiency, indoor air quality, lighting, material use and site management, were all taken into consideration during the certification.

MetLife vice-president John Vazquez said that over the past four years, the company had reduced its energy consumption by more than 15%.

MetLife worked alongside property manager Cushman & Wakefield to achieve the certifications.

In total, MetLife has six LEED-certified properties and 11 Energy Star-rated facilities.
