 In pursuit of LEED certification, TSMC established the highest standards and implemented many green strategies under the LEED EB:O&M v2009 rating system. The ambitious goals of the project owners and management pushed the team to go above and beyond, striving for extraordinary building operations. 

One of the most important aspects contributing to the project team's success is the commitment to Environmental Operations from top management, continuing down through every department. The support of TSMC owners, combined with the collaborated efforts of the building operations team have resulted in immeasurable success.

Most significantly, the reduced energy consumption compared to like buildings and reduced potable water usage are examples of the FAB12 Campus's exceptional environmental performance and quantifiable savings that an existing manufacturing campus can achieve.
