Red Sea Global (RSG), the multi-project developer, has achieved a groundbreaking milestone by securing the highest-ever score in the esteemed Platinum LEED v4.1 Cities: Plan and Design accreditation, awarded by the US Green Building Council (USGBC). With a score of 96 out of 110 points for Phase One of The Red Sea destination’s masterplan, RSG has firmly established itself as a leader in constructing environmentally friendly and highly efficient structures. This accomplishment highlights RSG’s proactive stance in surpassing industry benchmarks and creating a sustainable and eco-friendly built environment.
“We are proud to have achieved the highest-ever score in this accreditation, setting the bar for ourselves and others to follow,” said John Pagano, the Group CEO at Red Sea Global. This achievement follows another recent accolade for RSG, as the USGBC named it the ‘Outstanding Developer’ of the year at the LEED Homes Awards 2023. Peter Templeton, the President and CEO of the US Green Building Council, commended RSG’s unwavering commitment to the environment and positioned them as leaders in the industry.
RSG’s journey with LEED for Cities and Communities began in 2019 when the USGBC encouraged the company to pursue LEED v4.1 for Cities: Plan and Design. Raed Albasseet, Group Chief Environment & Sustainability Officer at RSG, stated, “We recognized its potential as a perfect fit for our aspirations at RSG. It allows cities to plan, design, develop, measure, and improve performance, focusing on outcomes from ongoing sustainability efforts.” RSG’s vision for a sustainable tourism destination became the foundation for the accreditation, and they are proud to have achieved the highest score ever accomplished.
With this record-breaking LEED certification, Red Sea Global is setting new standards in responsible development and inspiring others to pursue sustainable practices. Their commitment to sustainability and their dedication to creating a sustainable built environment are commendable. Congratulations to Red Sea Global on this remarkable achievement, which underscores their leadership in the industry and their dedication to a greener future.
