IDEC Corporation of Japan completed the construction of an eco-friendly sales office building in spring of this year. The new building is lit entirely with LED light units; positively affecting greenhouse gas by reducing energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions.
This unique building is a result of IDEC’s quest to fulfill its global responsibility as a socially conscientious company. In the midst of global warming, IDEC wanted to demonstrate its concern for protecting the environment in some concrete form. This eco-friendly building is one of the answers.
The new building is equipped with 11,000 LED devices and 250,000 LED chips, all manufactured by IDEC, which light up the entire building interior, the parking lot and the garden. These LED light units are not only bright, but they improve the environment through a 41% reduction in CO‚Â² gases. They also reduce the amount of waste the building produces, as these LED light units have a lifespan 5-6 times longer than fluorescent lamps, as well as being Mercury-free. Of course, the cost of installing LED lighting fixtures is higher than with traditional fixtures. However, the investment is recouped over 15 years, while helping the environment in the process. IDEC continues to strive for innovation in technology and ecology.
