Target Canada Seeks LEED Certification

Target is pursuing Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) certification for all 124 Canadian stores opening in 2013.
     Looking to conserve energy and water, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and limiting waste sent to landfill, Target will spend more than $10 million remodeling each location, including LEED preparations.
     The first wave of stores will open in March/April.
     Target is said to be among the first organizations in Canada to be part of the U.S. Green Building Council's (USGBC) LEED Volume Program, which streamlines the certification process for multiple buildings of a similar type.
