PrimeAsia China’s 4th gold reaccreditation is due to PrimeAsia’s dedication and focus on saving energy, reducing water usage, and increasing environmental management. The LWG environmental protocol continues to raise the requirements to attain gold status while China strives to uphold PrimeAsia’s progressive environmental goals and advance global environmental stewardship
