Penn National Gaming, Inc. ("Penn National Gaming") announced today that Plainridge Park Casino has been certified LEEDŽ Gold by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system, developed by the USGBC, is the preeminent certification program for buildings that are designed, constructed, maintained, and operated for improved environmental and human health performance.

"We are extremely proud that Plainridge Park Casino was able to achieve LEED Gold status, making it the only casino in the Northeast, and one of only a handful of casinos in the country, that can claim this prestigious designation," said Jay Snowden, Chief Operating Officer for Penn National Gaming. "Massachusetts is a leader in sustainability programs, and the Commonwealth's requirement for new gaming licensees to develop energy efficient and environmentally-conscious facilities reflects this commitment."

Plainridge Park Casino achieved LEED Gold certification for implementing practical and measurable strategies and solutions aimed at achieving high performance in: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, and indoor environmental quality. There are four levels of certification: Certified, Silver, Gold, and Platinum.

"Plainridge Park Casino's LEED Gold certification demonstrates tremendous green building leadership," said Rick Fedrizzi, CEO and founding chair, USGBC. "The urgency of USGBC's mission has challenged the industry to move faster and reach further than ever before, and Plainridge Park Casino serves as a prime example of just how much we can accomplish."

Plainridge Park Casino, the Commonwealth's first gaming facility, opened last June. Located in Plainville near the south I-495 and I-95 interchange, Plainridge Park Casino has approximately 1,250 slot machines, video poker terminals, and electronic table games, as well as nine dining and entertainment venues, including Flutie's Sports Pub.
