The Madero Group received on July 12, 2021 the USGBC LEADERSHIP AWARD. This award is the ultimate recognition for a company with projects and buildings focused on sustainability, the environment, individuals and the community around them. Last year, the Group was responsible for more than half of the LEED Certificate registrations in Brazil, proving its leadership in sustainability practices in Latin America. The Company had already been awarded in 2019.
Our latest vintages of restaurants built since the end of 2018 are Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, or LEED, certified, and we had the most LEED-certified restaurants in all of Latin America in 2019, according to information provided by LEED.
We have also earned the U.S. Green Building Council seal, attesting to the efficiency and environmental integrity of each building. Based on our guidelines and sustainable practices, we are able to control water and electricity consumption across our restaurants. We believe that our authentic and long-standing commitment to responsible and sustainable practices throughout the business better positions us to build loyalty and trust with all of our constituents.
