NEW YORK, Oct. 13 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --


    Bloomberg is the first company in Japan to earn the Gold honor from the

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating

System, achieving LEED Gold Certification for Commercial Interiors for the

Bloomberg office (19th floor) at 2-4-1 Marunouchi Chiyoda-Ku, Tokyo, Japan.

sustainable building qualities, making it the first and only holder of LEED

Gold certification in Japan.

Tokyo office," said Peter T. Grauer, Chairman of Bloomberg. "This

accomplishment recognizes our commitment not only to our customers in Japan,
