Shoeniverse Footwear Ltd, a local shoemaker, received LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold certificate from the US Green Building Council.
LEED is a certification programme for buildings and communities that guides their design, construction, operations and maintenance toward sustainability.
On Wednesday, the certificate was given to Shoeniverse—a member of Leathergoods and Footwear Manufacturers and Exporters Association of Bangladesh—in recognition to its contribution in environmental health for new and existing green buildings in Bangladesh.
“Shoeniverse is the first in leathergoods and footwear product sector to receive such prestigious award,” the company said in a statement yesterday.
