The solar-powered administration building at Nokian Tyres’ North American production facility has earned LEED v4 Gold certification, the latest achievement in the company’s quest to serve as a sustainability leader in the tire industry.
Inspectors highlighted the administration building’s innovation in design, energy efficiency and indoor environmental quality as key drivers of the high certification level. Design innovations include solar power, low-emitting building materials and a high level of natural lighting throughout the facility.
The accomplishment, coupled with LEED v4 Silver certification of the attached production facility, makes the company’s Dayton, Tennessee complex one of the most eco-friendly in the tire industry.
