LEED project certifications are important not only to designers, but to manufacturers as well. More and more manufacturers are building their own offices and headquarters to LEED specifications. Haworth and Kokuyo are two good examples.
Haworth Shanghai Organic Showroom
Located in Eco City on Shanghai's West Nanjing Road, Haworth's Organic Workspace is certified LEED gold. Haworth picked building materials with their environmental performance in mind: low VOC content, recyclable, and from rapidly renewable sources. Events held at their showroom are attended by many designers who share Haworth's environmentally-progressive values.

Kokuyo Shanghai Showroom
Kokuyo is currently applying for LEED gold certification for their innovative new showroom in Shanghai. As important as any other building strategy was using only materials and resources that promote good indoor environmental quality: low-emitting paints, flooring and adhesives, for example. Kokuyos showroom is furnished with the best of their own products, which contribute to LEED credits.
