Four stations on Route 2020 achieve LEED Gold Certification says RTA

The rating comes as part of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) programme

Seven metro stations on Route 2020 have been awarded the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold Certification, according to Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA).

“The US Green Buildings Council had confirmed that the RTA has the world’s highest number of LEED v4 BD+C: NC certified Transit projects. This achievement reflects the authority’s standing commitment to leadership and excellence in delivering the Route 2020 project for the region and the world over,” explained Abdul Redha Abu Al Hasan, executive director of Rail Planning and Projects Developments at the RTA’s Rail Agency.

He added, “This achievement is credited to selecting the best locations for stations and implementing strategies for saving the consumption of power and water. Such strategies are also aimed at curbing carbon emissions, using suitable and recyclable building materials, and reducing construction waste.”

He noted that the RTA was keen to using cutting-edge technologies and implementing green building technologies, as part of its endeavour to nurture a more sustainable urban environment.

“It also seeks to enhance the efficiency of the infrastructure in all vital activities and facilities through which it had made significant achievements that had a crucial role in protecting the environment, saving costs and preserving resources,” he concluded.
