A KFC restaurant in Xuan Wu Men, China, has been awarded a LEED Gold Certification, marking the brand’s third certification in the market. According to a press release, KFC is the only QSR in China with LEED certification.

During a press conference held this week, Nellie Cheng, global marketing director of the U.S. Green Building Committee, presented the LEED Gold Plague to Zhao Li, general manager of BJ KFC Co. Ltd, which operates the restaurant. 

China’s LEED certification system includes standards such as water/electricity energy control, construction material usage and indoor environment quality.

The Xuanwu Men restaurant features new equipment, such as a white efficiency three-layer display holding cabinet, LED lighting system and sun induction control lighting. There is also a high-efficiency hood, a non-fresco refrigerant air conditioning system, low-flush valves in the bathroom and an energy consumption monitoring system.

KFC will keep complete tracking and evaluation on the energy saving performance.

During the press conference, Li Ya Guang, vice chairman of the China Cuisine Association, said the LEED Gold certification shows that KFC has achieved internationally-acknowledged green and energy-saving high standards.
