SPARK recognized as first industrial city to receive Mostadam GOLD certification
Mostadam is a regionally recognized green building certification system, which verifies that buildings are designed to improve performance across key sustainability metrics.
King Salman Energy Park (SPARK) has been recognized for being the first industrial city in the Kingdom to receive Mostadam Gold certification.
In an event hosted by the Ministry of Municipal Rural Affairs and Housing, and attended by HE the Minister of Municipal Rural Affairs and Housing Majed A. Al-Hogail and HRH Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman, the Minister of Energy, Abdulkarim A. Ghamdi, Aramco’s vice president of Project Management represented the company.
Mostadam is a regionally recognized green building certification system, which verifies that buildings are designed to improve performance across key sustainability metrics such as energy savings, water efficiency, carbon dioxide emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, stewardship of resources, and sensitivity to their impact.
SPARK is the first industrial city with mixed use development to be certified under the Mostadam rating system for its design under Communities Design and Construction with a gold rating. Initiated by Aramco, this new city differentiates itself from the existing in-Kingdom industrial cities by employing a unique value proposition and creating a world-class sustainable ecosystem.
The Mostadam certification strengthens SPARK’s ability to support future tenants and investors on their own journey toward certification of their own facilities, as part of a fully integrated energy community. It also affirms the city’s integrated sustainability practices, which are at the heart of the community’s planning.
