DETROIT, MI — TCF Center is among 10 companies, projects and individuals receiving a 2020 U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) Leadership Award. TCF Center is the only convention center in the United States receiving the award this year.
The 2020 recipients represent leaders who are driving the adoption of Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) across business portfolios, higher education and green affordable housing, as well as helping to advance Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) performance, resilience planning and innovative waste-management solutions.
“We realize that the TCF Center is an economic engine for the Detroit community,” said Claude Molinari, General Manager of ASM Global/TCF Center. “We take this responsibility seriously and do everything we can to include the local and event communities in our efforts to hit as many of the UN Sustainable Development Goals as we can each year, reducing our carbon footprint and enriching the lives of residents and visitors.”
TCF Center achieved LEED Gold in October 2019 under LEED v4.1 O+M. It is one of only a few convention centers in the world to certify under that rating system.
